An evening of classical and early romantic music can be expected at the Lincolnshire Philharmonia Orchestra’s summer concert next week.

The orchestra play the Whittle Hall, at RAF College Cranwell, on Sunday, July 12, from 7.30pm.

The conductor for the evening will be Michael Parsons and, for the first time ever in a Whittle Hall concert, the audience will be able to hear a Steinway Grand Piano being played in Mozart’s concerto No 24, with soloist Christopher Atkinson.

The programme for the concert runs as follows: Schubert - Rosamunde Overture, Mozart - Piano Concerto No 24 in C minor, K491, and then, following an interval, Brahms - Hungarian Dances (2, 5 and 6), Schumann - Symphony No 3 in Eb, and Opus 97 ‘Rhenish’.

Founded by Malcolm Goodman in 2001, the Lincolnshire Philharmonia Orchestra has a unique musical partnership between professional musicians from the Band of the RAF College, other RAF personnel and instrumentalists from around the region.

Tickets for the concert are priced at £7.50 for adults and £4 for accompanied children aged under 16.
