Our summer concert is at Westholme School, where we are grateful for use of the Croston Theatre.
The Theatre has tiered seating which gives excellent visibility of the orchestra – especially for younger members of the audience.
The School has a large car park just a short walk from the venue.
Khachaturian Masquerade Suite
We begin our programme with the exciting Masquerade Suite. All of life is here, with an exciting waltz, a nocturne with beautiful violin solo, the folksy Mazurka, a love-sick Romance, and ending with a gallop to the finish. Watch out for some virtuoso woodwind playing
Respighi The Pines of Rome
Our top-notch brass section take the lead in Pines of Rome, including a second brass ensemble playing off stage. The music is atmospheric as it depicts pines trees in different parts of Rome. You will feel the sun on your back and hear the wind whistling through the trees.

Borodin Symphony no. 2
Our concert closes with Borodin’s 2nd symphony. The whole orchestra has lots to do hear, as we progress through a rhythmic and exciting Allegro, through a wild Scherzo, pause for breath in a beautiful Andante, then a pretty speedy Finale. It’s music to tap your feet to and great fun to play
