Summer Moon’s night of “Hope and Glory”
The ever-popular “Night at the Proms” concert was held on the evening of Thursday 21 June 2018. It was utterly brilliant !
With a full capacity audience (300 people) in the large marquee the evening was very well supported – and what a treat everyone enjoyed. If you couldn’t come along this year, why not make a diary note for 2019 to buy tickets in late May/early June?
This was a traditional “Night at the Proms” concert by the Torbay Symphony Orchestra. The audience enjoyed stirring traditional flag waving and singing along with those old favourites, Land of Hope and Glory, Jerusalem and Rule Britannia.
The programme was:-
Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet
Mahler: Songs of the Wayfarer. Soloist – Alison Kettlewell, Mezzo-soprano
Debussy: Danse Sacree et Danse Profane for Harp and Strings. Soloist – Rosanna Rolton, Harp
Dvorak: New World Symphony – 1st and 2nd Movements
Pomp & Circumstance March No 1 – Sir Edward Elgar
Fantasia on British Sea Songs – Sir Henry Wood
Jerusalem – Sir Hubert Parry
A few words from the Orchestra….
“We are as always looking forward to playing at this lovely venue where we are made so welcome by the enthusiastic audience and it has become a real pleasure to play”
