Cheltenham Philharmonic Orchestra – Winter Concert – Jazz and Blues
The Orchestra are delighted to welcome a longstanding friend of the orchestra, Marcel Zidani – piano, to play Gershwin’s joyful and exuberant Rhapsody in Blue which opens with that famous clarinet solo. Shostakovich’s melodic Jazz Suites complete an exhilarating first half. Florence Price was the first African American woman to be recognised as a symphonic composer and her Symphony No.1 in E Minor was the first work by an African American woman to be played by a major orchestra – the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 1933. The Cheltenham Philharmonic Orchestra are delighted to be playing this unjustly neglected symphonic gem in 2018.
The orchestra is led by Sue Belinfante and conducted by Stephen Belinfante. If you would like to read more about the concert or the orchestra find us at www.cheltenhamphilharmonic.co.uk.
The Cheltenham Philharmonic Orchestra presents their Winter Concert influenced by Jazz and Blues.
Breathtaking, unique and radiating regency refinement, Pittville Pump Room is monument to the more than 100 years of fame Cheltenham enjoyed as a Spa town, and perhaps the most famous example of regency architecture in the area.
