Orchestra tunes into 30 years of music
THE Hillingdon Philharmonic Orchestra are preparing to celebrate an incredible 30 years of music.
They will perform a special 30th anniversary concert on May 21 at All Saints Church, Hillingdon and continue their tradition of bringing classical favourites to the widest possible audience in the borough and beyond.
The 30th Anniversary Concert will feature the music of Sibelius, Smetana and Dvorák.
Hillingdon Philharmonic Orchestra was formed in 1985 and is now well established in the local area with over 60 registered members.
Its membership continues to be made up of local amateur musicians who wish to continue to develop their orchestral playing.
Over the last 30 years the orchestra has performed a wide variety of works at some of London’s most prestigious venues including Cadogan Hall, Southwark Cathedral and the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the South Bank. The Orchestra has also given countless concerts at local venues throughout Hillingdon including two outdoor concerts with fireworks in the grounds of Swakeleys House in Ickenham.
The concert will be led by Lucy Cumming and conducted by the founder of the Orchestra, Peter J. Williams. For further details see: www. hillingdonphil.btck.co.uk
