Michael Wheatley, conductor
Elgar Sospiri, Op. 70
Bax November Woods
OSSCS Concerto Competition winner
Vaughan Williams Five Tudor Portraits
Edward Elgar's touching miniature Sospiri ("Sighs," for strings, harp and organ) is sure to warm you up from the cold, after which Arnold Bax will color your imagination with his evocative tone poem November Woods (secretly inspired by an illicit love affair). A performance by the winner of our annual concerto competition will close the first half of the program. Ralph Vaughan Williams' rarely heard choral tour de force Five Tudor Portraits, setting verses by English poet John Skelton, will bring the evening to a grand close.
