Wymondham Symphony Orchestra rounds off its 25th anniversary celebrations at St Mary's Parish Church, Attleborough, on Saturday, November 21 and promises an exciting musical experience.

A varied programme will include Verdi's La Forza del Destino, Louis Spohr's Concertante for Violin and Harp No. 1 (with Davide Monti and Maria Cleary), the Overture - The Fall of Babylon and Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition.

Spohr, a prominent violinist and conductor was born in Germany in 1784, a few years after Mozart and became a prolific composer, well know at the time throughout Europe.

He had a great influence on the choral composers in Britain and was hugely popular here.

The orchestra is welcoming the ensemble ARPARLA with Davide Monti, violin and Maria Christina Cleary, harp.

They take their inspiration from a desire to speak with music (parla in Italian means “speak”), using the soft and refined resonances of the harp and the expressive range of colours of the violin. Both soloists play on original instruments; Maria plays a single-action harp from the early 19th century and Davide plays a 1724 violin with gut strings and an historical bow.

Tickets for the 7.30pm concert are £10, £9, (concessions) £2 (for children) and are available from the White Horse Gallery, Attleborough, on 01953 455543; Prelude Records, Norwich 01603 628319 and Brian Randall, Wymondham on 01953 601939.
