Saturday 28th March, 7.30pm
Huntingdonshire Philharmonic Society
Choral & Orchestral Concert
|Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”|
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.

7th to 11th April, 7.30pm
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.”
adults: £9.50 - £8.50 Concessions
