An evening of Dvorak and MahlerLGSO bring some sparkle to midwinter with Dvorak’s Carnival Overture, then spoil us with second helpings of that composer, whose Cello Concerto is served hot with super-talented soloist George Hoult. For dessert expect the ‘heavenly pleasures’ of Mahler’s Symphony No. 4.
London Gay Symphony Orchestra is the UK's oldest LGBT orchestra and one of only a handful in the world. Founded in 1996, the LGSO has given four or more concerts every year for the past nineteen years at venues including Royal Festival Hall; toured internationally to Paris and Zagreb; performed with Jimmy Somerville, Rosalind Plowright and Sue Perkins; recorded a score for the cult film Pervirella; commissioned work from upcoming composers; and raised thousands for charities such as Albert Kennedy Trust.
