Welcome to the web-site of the London Community Orchestra. We are now halfway through our 2013-2014 season, and we want to thank all those who have joined us in celebrating our FORTIETH anniversary.
To celebrate our birthday we have already featured appearances by our first president, HENRY BOLDT, and our first conductor, BRUCE RICHARDSON, and for the rest of the season we have planned several more special events that look back to our past history.
On SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 23, we will hear from RALPH ALDRICH, who has been supportive of and very important to the orchestra since the very beginning. At that concert we will play Flos campi by Vaughan Williams, and our viola soloist in that piece will be SHARON WEI,, who has recently returned to London to teach at Western. When Sharon was previously in London, she played as a soloist in our December Young Artists concert, in 1997, and we are delighted to welcome her back now that her musical career has flourished.
In February and at the concert on APRIL 27 there will also be a chance to see a slide show featuring memorable moments in the history of the orchestra.
Please join us on February 23, for music by Manuel de Falla and Ralph Vaughan Williams. Both Sharon Wei, violist, and the London Pro Musica choir will be joining us for that concert. And mark April 27 on your calendar, when our last concert of the season will feature Mary-Elizabeth Brown playing Beethoven’s violin concerto.
