Orchestral extravaganza for 40 years' twinning
Published 23/06/14



MORE than 150 voices from both sides of the English Channel will join Henley Symphony Orchestra in a musical extravaganza to celebrate Henley’s 40th anniversary of twinning with Falaise.

Choirs from the Normandy town and neighbouring Putange are travelling to Henley for the orchestra’s summer afternoon concert, which will be held on the lawns of Shiplake College next Sunday, June 29. The grounds will be open for picnics and a bar from 1pm.

The orchestra, together with the French choirs and singers from Henley Choral Society, Benson Choral Society and Aliquando, will perform Fauré’s Requiem and Rutter’s Gloria.

The orchestra visited Normandy in May this year to give the same concert to a packed Forum Concert Hall in Falaise, and to a “warm and enthusiastic” audience in the church of the village of Putange. French soloists baritone Fabrice Penin and soprano Camille Nicolas who sang at the concerts will also be performing at the Shiplake concert.

The programme will also include Dvorak’s Symphony no 8 with its echoes of birdsong and Bohemian dance rhythms, and Walton’s patriotic Spitfire Prelude and Fugue. Taken from his film score for The First of the Few, this was written in 1942 after the Battle of Britain turned the tide for the Allies.

Tickets for the concert at 3pm are £15 reserved, £10 unreserved, U16/students half price, available from the box office on 01235 859210 or visit www.henley symphonyorchestra.co.uk/contact.
