What a terrific concert we had last night! As always, Sam Laughton gave us an interesting and challenging programme to sink our teeth into and this was enjoyed by orchestra and audience alike.
The highlight? Unquestionably the Nielsen clarinet concerto and Mandy Burvill’s dazzling performance, but the audience was also enthused by our Haydn and Schubert symphonies and the atmospheric and moving Cantus in memoriam Benjamin Britten of Arvo Pärt.
And so ends our 21st season, which has seen us in a variety of guises: commemorating the music of Frederick Kelly and his contemporaries last November; our super Brahms German Requiem performance earlier this year and of course last night’s varied programme.
We return on 25 November in a concert at the Amersham Free Church Church. Details will follow shortly.
BECOME A FRIEND OF THE CAMERATA?
We would like to develop closer links with audience members and those who support us in other ways, and so we have decided to introduce a ‘Friends of the Camerata’scheme. Becoming a friend does not necessarily involve paying any money, although of course donations and financial sponsorships are always welcome and will be appropriately acknowledged! Friendship can come in other forms too, especially by helping the orchestra in practical ways, including publicity and general organisation. So if you might be interested in assisting us in any way at all, do please contact us for further details.
