Saturday, 10th December at 7:30pm
Conductor - Cormac Dorrian
Leader - Sylvia Seaton
Cormac Dorrian will be directing the festive evening that will include not one but two versions of Sleigh Ride – one by Delius and the other, the more famous, by Leroy Anderson. We'll also have A Carol Symphony by Hely-Hutchinson, full of favourite festive tunes, plus the Christmas Overture by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor.
And Christmas is always made special by Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite - we'll be playing some of the most well known dances .
There will also be songs from Natasha – It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas and White Christmas – and carols for Audience and Orchestra.
DSO - 75 Years and more
We are a group of talented musicians, of all ages, united in a love of great, popular orchestral music and in the joy of playing to our valued audiences. We have been rehearsing and performing in Dartford for over 75 years and are the premier orchestra for the region. Whatever your favourite piece of orchestral music may be - from Haydn to Beethoven to Rachmaninov, from Symphony to Concerto to Ballet Suite - you'll find something you'll enjoy in our varied concert season.
For a great night out at a convenient local venue with the sound of a full symphony orchestra playing rousing pot-boiler overtures, lilting waltzes, and stirring melodies do make a note of our concert programmes and dates.
We perform 4 - 5 concerts every year - all at the Mick Jagger Centre in Dartford.
