Hitchin Symphony Orchestra - Concert in Memory of Paul Rooke
  • St Mary's Church
    SG5 1HP
The programme for HSO's concert in May 2020 was specially chosen by Paul Adrian Rooke to celebrate his 75th birthday. Following his death in November 2019 the orchestra planned to dedicate this concert to his memory. Unfortunately, however, the Covid-19 pandemic meant the HSO committee had to take the sad decision to cancel both our May and November concerts in 2020. Much of the same music will therefore be played instead at this concert.

Rutland Boughton: A Summer Night

Max Bruch: Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor – with soloist Fenella Humphreys

Paul Adrian Rooke: Saxophone Concerto – with soloist Alison Eales

Edward Elgar: ‘Enigma’ Variations, Op. 36
