Orchestra is getting ready for 30th year

SYMPHONIC works by Mozart, Stravinsky, Duparc and Debussy will open the West Forest Sinfonia’s 30th season

SYMPHONIC works by Mozart, Stravinsky, Duparc and Debussy will open the West Forest Sinfonia’s 30th season later this month.

The University of Reading’s Great Hall in London Road is the venue for the concert on Sunday, September 25, at 4.30pm.

Soprano Louise Turner from Wokingham will guest on the third item in the programme, Henri Duparc’s Three Orchestral Songs.

Opening the proceedings will be Mozart’s 38th Symphony — often referred to as The Prague Symphony as it was written to be performed in the Czech capital.

Next up is Stravinsky’s Symphony in Three Movements. Written in America in 1943-4, the work is sometimes referred to as the War Symphony given the influence that the Second World War is thought to have had on its composition.



Composed in Jersey and Eastbourne early in the 20th century, Debussy’s famous symphonic masterpiece La Mer will provide the finale.

Tickets are £15 (£14 concessions, with students and under-18s £2.50). To book, call 0118 978 6189 or visit www.wegottickets.com
