We think that turning 50 qualifies us for amateur orchestra royalty, so we are kicking off our birthday year in regal style with Handel’s Zadok the Priest, performed in celebration of every English coronation since 1727. The classical celebration continues with Haydn’s Symphony no.104 (“The London”) and his popular Trumpet Concerto. Finally, Prokoviev’s Classical Symphony which he wrote in the style of Haydn.
Joining us for this classical celebration concert will be our long-time collaborators, the wonderful Excelsia Choir.
Strathfield Symphony has always focused on providing opportunities to our own players, so our own principal trumpet Matthew Gately, will be our trumpet solo.
