Respighi Pines of Rome
Stoneleigh Youth Orchestra
Susan Gritton soprano
Robert Hodge conductor
Dan Shilladay assistant conductor
Stoneleigh open this 75th-anniversary concert with a performance of Janáček’s Sinfonietta. Featuring a 13-strong fanfare band in addition to the orchestral brass and a greatly enlarged percussion section, this is undoubtedly some of the most exciting music to hear live in a concert hall. Stoneleigh’s Training Orchestra perform works by Nielsen, Mozart and Bizet, and the extended forces return to bring the concert to a close with Respighi’s Pines of Rome.
The Orchestra is also delighted to welcome internationally renowned soprano and Stoneleigh alumna Susan Gritton for a performance of Ravel’s song cycle Shéhérazade.
