Chesterfield Symphony Orchestra will be bringing a tour-de-force programme whose work involves more than 60 musicians plus the organ and concert grand piano.

The highly acclaimed musicians will be appearing at The Crossing on Saturday 9th April at 7.30pm.

They were scheduled to perform at the Newcastle Street venue in November, however, the adverse weather conditions halted their efforts.

Programmer David Jordan said it was hugely disappointing: “It really is worth waiting for because one of my own favourites the Saint-Saens Organ Symphony is a totally spine-tingling composition.”

He added the orchestra will benefit from the building’s acoustics and ‘recital-standard’ organ and piano.

Anna Reed, from the orchestra, commented: “The Crossing is a fantastic venue in which to showcase the orchestra under our conductor Andrew Hodkinson and leader Edward Boothroyd and on this occasion we’re also featuring well-known and popular works by Borodin, Ravel and Walton.”

This is the largest-scale orchestral concert mounted so far at The Crossing.

Chesterfield Symphony Orchestra will be at The Crossing on 9th April 2011 at 7.30pm. Doors open 6.45pm. Ticket prices are £10, conc £9, children and students £4 from The Crossing’s welcome desk or order by phone to 01909 475421.
