UNIVERSITY SINFONIA

Conductors: Rosemary Callery Christopher Hoggarth Jamie Njoku-Goodwin Beethoven, Coriolan Overture Haydn, Symphony No.92, G major (Oxford) Vaughan Williams, English Folk Song Suite Beethoven Mass in C (excerpts) Sinfonia’s second concert provides much variation. Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture follows the story of Coriolanus and is full of his inner torment contrasting his mother’s gentle pleading. Haydn has been dubbed Father of the Symphony producing some 104 works and yet his ‘Oxford’ Symphony is still fresh and colourful, subtle and poignant. Vaughan Williams’ ‘Folk Song Suite’ draws from his interest in folk music. Originally written for military band, the suite still contains much of its gusto and rhythmical pace. Excitingly, the orchestra will also combine with the University's Chamber choir, Viva Voce to perform excerpts from Beethoven's Mass in C. Viva Voce will also be performing two works on their own; Britten's Choral Dances from 'Gloriana' and in contrast, Mealor's Four Madrigals on Rose Texts. The concert will end at 9.30pm approximately.
