MHO press release
MHO, Market Harborough’s very own orchestra, is preparing to give its 14th concert under the baton of Stephen Bell on Saturday 28 th October at 7.30pm at the Methodist Church, Northampton Rd, Market Harborough.
Secretary and flautist Frances Hynes says: ‘We are calling this concert ‘Once Upon A Time’ as we are playing music inspired by myths, legends and fairy tales. Rimsky Korsakov’s spirited and lovely Scheherazade is based on the princess of One Thousand and One Nights who told her husband a
different tale each night to stave off her execution. Although the name Engelbert Humperdinck is known to many as a famous resident of Great Glen, the name originally belonged to a nineteenth-century German composer and we will be playing the exquisite overture to his opera Hansel and Gretel. Grieg’s dramatic Peer Gynt suite, including the famous ‘Morning’ is based on the Norwegian fairy tale hero and his epic journey. We are also playing a couple of very beautiful pieces from Tchaikowsky’s Sleeping Beauty. Do come along and listen, our aim is always to provide the opportunity to listen to great orchestral music in our home town.
