Saturday 28th March, 7.30pm
Huntingdonshire Philharmonic Society

presents
a
Choral & Orchestral Concert
Beethoven
  Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”
Haydn
 Harmoniemesse
  
Nicola Ihnatowicz, soprano
Harriet Webb, mezzo soprano
Nick Allen, tenor
Dominic Sedgwick, bass

Beethoven’s “Pastoral” symphony belongs to a long tradition of descriptive music. Nature in rustic country scenes and the inevitable storm are all present – with descriptive titles to match, but Beethoven’s own subtitle, “More an expression of feeling than a painting”, perhaps gives the real key to this symphony’s enduring appeal. 

The Harmoniemesse or “Wind-band Mass” was Haydn’s last grand full scale work, and his only Mass to use a full complement of wind instruments. Sections of magnificent choral writing integrate with passages for soloists, and in the final climactic ending Haydn adds his farewell as the last notes of the “Dona nobis pacem” soar heavenwards.

Tickets: (on sale one month before the concert, priced at
£14.00 (raked) / £12.00 (flat) (students £7.00 / £6.00)

After the ‘sell-out’ success of Les Miserables, Spotlight Productions are preparing to make a splash with their next spectacular production, Singin’ in the Rain.

Considered by many to be the gold standard in movie musicals, Singin' in the Rain takes audiences into the magic of a 1920s Hollywood Soundstage where cinema gave the American imagination a vivid new language for dreaming big dreams.

For the first time in its history Spotlight Productions will make it rain on stage, in a dazzling stage effect that will bring the beloved MGM film Singin’ in the Rain to life in downtown Huntingdon. The musical follows silent movie star Don Lockwood who has everything he could ever want, fame, adulation and even a well-publicised romance with his co-star Lina Lamont. But hilarity ensues when a new kind of film alters everything, the kind of film where actors talk, sing… and even dance! The musical features a glorious score including the well-known numbers “Make ‘em Laugh,” “Good Morning,” “Moses Supposes” and, of course, “Singin’ in the Rain.”

Tickets:
adults: £9.50 - £8.50 Concessions
available from the box office 07745 522271
or on-line at www.spotlight-theatre.co.uk

An Evening of Mediumship
with
TV Psychic - Tony Stockwell

Stockwell
Sensitive and inspirational, his messages are amazingly detailed and always humorous.

It’s NOT creepy or kooky, mysterious or spooky. It’s Psychic Medium Tony Stockwell demonstrating his belief that those who have passed can communicate with their loved ones.

At its best, Mediumship has the potential to change someone’s life and to instil in them a sense of peace, comfort and purpose. Psychic Medium Tony Stockwell is not a new kid on the block and during his 25 years working as a medium he has constantly worked to improve his game and push the boundaries of his communication. In that time he has
had umpteen television programmes, taught at some of the most respected schools for mediumistic development as well as setting up his own training school for developing mediums.

Tony Stockwell is a Spiritualist Medium and spirit communication is part of his own religious belief, but we accept differing opinions exist regarding mediumship. Any demonstration of mediumship is an experiment and results are not guaranteed.

Tickets: £19.00
available from the box office - 01480 375678 accepted

Pre book your time slot to avoid disappointment. To book multiple tickets, please choose your time band and click 'add another person' or Follow the link in your booking confirmation email, then add additional people on your personal booking page.
We admit groups at set intervals during each time band.
If you book for the time band '8pm to 9pm', you should arrive at some point between 8pm and 9pm.
We let through groups in each time band on a first-come-first-served basis. This means that the earlier your group arrives to collect their tickets, the closer to the start of the hour you will enter The Horror at Hinchingbrooke House. So in a one hour time band, some groups will enter close to the beginning of the hour, and some close to the end, depending on the number of people who arrive ahead of you.
