Welcome to the web-site of the London Community Orchestra!
We are having a wonderful time this year celebrating our fortieth anniversary. At our concert on February 23, Ralph Aldrich, a long-time friend and booster of the orchestra, and our soloist on several occasions, spoke with his usual positivity about the orchestra and its history.
We are also very grateful for the outstanding participation in the concert of viola soloist Sharon Wei, mezzo-soprano Amelia Daigle, and the London Pro Music choir. All these fine musicians, and the exciting music by Vaughan Williams and De Falla that we performed, made for an memorable afternoon.
After the concert audience and players alike enjoyed a marvellous SLIDE SHOW of pictures from our past and present, put together by our member Meredith Harris. The slide show will also be shown after the concert ON APRIL 27.
On Tuesday, March 5, at 7:00, we are collaborating with several local high schools – Catholic Central, Central, Laurier, Saunders, and Woodstock Collegiate – in a concert at Saunders Secondary School. It is a pleasure to play with all these talented young people, and they say they enjoy it too. Many thanks to their teachers for making this happen, and especially to our own concertmaster Carolyn Martinelli, who also directs the string programme at Catholic Central.
For our NEXT CONCERT ON APRIL 27 we are looking forward to playing BEETHOVEN’S VIOLIN CONCERTO IN D WITH MARY-ELIZABETH BROWN, Associate Concertmaster of Orchestra London. We will also perform the SYMPHONY NUMBER 2 BY JOHAN SVENDSEN, a remarkable work that we are pleased to bring to our London audience and that we are sure you will enjoy.
We look forward to seeing you on April 27!
