Ripon’s renowned St Cecilia Orchestra is much more than just an orchestra.
At its most spectacular it is an exceptionally fine and very large symphony orchestra, often working with top class international soloists and capable of giving high-quality performances
What a programme! William Walton's March "Orb & Sceptre", written for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth, followed by Britten's "Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra" (with Nevin Ward as narrator). After the interval, the wonderfully evocative "Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis" for strings, by Vaughan Williams and then Elgar's magnificent "Enigma Variations".
