DARLINGTON Orchestra’s summer concert takes place in July in Darlington.

This accessible concert is suitable for people of all ages – from regular concertgoers to anyone who is new to hearing live classical music.

The orchestra will perform a selection of popular classics from across three centuries, including 'Occasional Overture' and 'The Faithful Shepherd' by Handel, 'Academic Festival Overture' by Brahms, 'Dance of the Tumblers' by Rimsky-Korsakov and a Selection from Les Misérables' by Schonberg.

In addition, special guests Rhapsody Community Choir will perform two ten-minute sets.

The Darlington Orchestra is a community orchestra featuring local amateur musicians, which performs two regular concerts per year and occasionally participates in other events.

A printed programme is included in the ticket price, providing brief details about the music and composers. Plus, there will be a version available for children aged five to 11 years.
