We take our fun seriously!
During 2019 we celebrate the 10th anniversary of Jeff Rimmer taking over the musical directorship of the Southport Orchestra. Under Jeff’s baton and with his undisguised enthusiasm, his superlative musicianship and love of the Southport Orchestra, we have expanded our repertoire and have gained in reputation and played to increasingly large audiences.
This year is no exception. SO presents music from across the ages from Mozart to Beethoven to Dvořák and from Sibelius to 20th century popular classics.
Within this repertoire you will find much-loved favourites and some that are lesser known, but equally fantastic music.
We end our 2019 season with a concert of music by 19th and 20th century giants - Greig, Sibelius & Dvorak which will be held on the 30th November at Emmanuel Church, Southport. (For more details see the ‘Concerts’ page).
Making his debut with the orchestra is the violinist Ben Cartlidge who will play the Sibelius violin concerto.
Below you can see a video of Southport Orchestra rehearsing, with Jeff Rimmer explaining the programme.
We hope you find the videos both enjoyable and instructive.
Thank you to all our very enthusiastic supporters – your attendance at our concerts makes it all worthwhile. And also a big thank you to - Jeff Rimmer.Header image used copyright anonw.com
