Our next concert is Sunday, 24th June 2018 at 7.00pm. Please note a change from our regular venue – this concert will be held at Kensington Town Hall, Hornton Street, W8 7NX.
Wager ‘Waldweben’ from Siegfried
Sibelius Symphony No 7 op.105 in C major
Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto op.35 in D major (Soloist: Melina Mandozzi)
The Kensington Philharmonic Orchestra welcomes back the dazzling Melina Mandozzi, concertmaster of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, for a performance of Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto. Much loved by Kensington Philharmonic Orchestra audiences for her many appearances in recent seasons, Melina is sure to produce a display of warmth and fireworks. Staying in Northern Europe, the concert will also feature Sibelius’s profound final symphony, his seventh, described as one of the most ambitious and extraordinary symphonies in the repertoire.
