LCO Spring Concert 3pm 25th March 2018 with Robert Chasey

Lancashire Chamber Orchestra are delighted to welcome back the inimitable Mr Robert Chasey for our 2018 concert series.  Bob first took up his baton with the LCO back in the 1980s and we are thrilled that he has agreed to put us through our paces again in this gorgeous program of Spring music.


We begin our concert with the charmingly beautiful and fresh Romanze for Strings, by the British composer Gerald Finzi.


We are then joined by our first-rate wind, brass and percussion team for a performance of Siegfried Idyll by Richard Wagner.  Siegfried was written as a birthday present from Wagner to his wife, Cosima to celebrate the birth of their son.


We conclude our concert with the effervescent and tuneful Symphony No. 3 by Franz Schubert


During the interval, you will be treated to delicious home made cakes and refreshments!  We do hope you will join us for a wonderful concert.
