November 3rd 2019 Concert with the Maia Choir

For the next final concert in our 50th Anniversary Season, Lancashire Chamber Orchestra will be joining forces with the Maia Choir, who are also 50!  They will be serenading you with a delightful selection of songs under the expert direction of Mr John Pomphrey.


We are also thrilled that Ivor Hodgson has composed a new piece for the Lancashire Chamber Orchestra which will receive its World Premier at this performance. 


Our programme will also include well known favourites from the classics: 

Purcell – Britten: Chaconne for Strings

Elgar: Salut d’Amour

Schubert: Entr’acte from Rosamunde and Symphony No. 5, last movement




Guiding the orchestra through this beautiful repertoire for this concert will be our principal conductor, the ever-entertaining Mr Robert Chasey.




As usual, there will be a delicious selection of cakes to enjoy with your tea or coffee at the interval.

Lancashire Chamber Orchestra would be delighted to welcome new string players to join our merry band!  We rehearse on occasional Sundays in Lancashire and Cheshire and give two or three performances a year in Altrincham, Cheshire.  We are also very privileged to be regularly invited to accompany some wonderful choral societies in Lancashire, Manchester, Cheshire and Derbyshire in their fabulous repertoire.


We are always very happy to welcome new players able to combine a high standard of performance on their instrument with a strong commitment to the orchestra's schedule. We are a friendly group who strive to our best endeavours to perform to the highest possible standard and simply enjoy making music together. Come and join us in this rewarding and stimulating venture.
