    Description: Remembering Nottingham Sinfonietta
    As it is our 50th birthday, it's a good opportunity to go right back to the NPO's roots for this beautiful chamber concert.  The NPO was originally founded as the Nottingham Sinfonietta and gave its first concert in St Giles' Church, West Bridgford.  The first piece on that programme (and on ours) was Hebrides Overture.  On that occasion, the concerto soloist was a member of the orchestra, so following in that tradition, our soloists for the concert are our French Horn section (one of whom played in the first Nottingham Sinfonietta concert too!).

    Full programme:
    Mendelssohn - Hebrides Overture (Fingal's Cave)
    Gipps - Cringlemire Garden
    Schumann - Konzertstuck
    Soloists:  NPO French Horns
    Salieri - La Grotta di Trofonio (Trofonio's Cave)
    Beethoven - Symphony No 5
