Programme Note

Join us for the day as we embark on the latest musical marathon for Comic Relief. Following the success of Haydathon in 2009, and Beethovathon in 2015, the team have reunited to organise the next musical marathon, to be performed by our orchestral decathletes in three concerts, in one day. All proceeds go to Comic Relief. Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has become something of a British institution. It’s the day, every two years, when people across the land can get together and do something funny for money. The hand picked musicians from across the South will join forces to perform popular orchestral masterpieces from ten different composers.
