Highland Chamber Orchestra’s 15th anniversary concert in Eden Court Theatre

Rehearsals are now under way for a programme we are all looking forward to performing.  We performed Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony some years ago and are delighted to be giving it a second airing along with Mozart’s ever popular Overture, Don Giovanni and the gorgeous Vocalise
by Rachmaninov.  Joining the orchestra for this performance is soprano Aileen Birch.

The orchestra occasionally has composers’ days when we invite local composers to have a work rehearsed with the possibility of a public performance.  At our last composers’ day we rehearsed “Across the Albans” – music by one of our viola players, Helen Goodwill, – and words by principal flautist, Catherine O’Rourke.  Right from the beginning we loved this work and we know you will too!  There were many requests from orchestra members to perform it publicly and our 15th anniversary concert in Eden Court Theatre, Inverness seemed a most appropriate time and place for its inaugural performance.  The orchestra is pleased to have Aileen Birch and Christopher Josey with us for the first performances of the exciting new work.
