Jersey Chamber Orchestra 'Classics from Vienna' Saturday October 7th 2017

Called Classics from Vienna, the event featured popular classical music written in the beautiful city of Vienna in aid of the Jersey Child Care Trust.  The Trust’s fantastic services support and directly assist children and their families in Jersey.

The programme included Beethoven’s wonderful and dramatic Pastoral Symphony, and his Coriolan Overture. Special guest soloist Martin Owen, widely regarded as one of Europe’s leading horn players, also performed Mozart’s popular 4th Horn concerto. We were equally proud to feature the acclaimed Justin Doyle, Chief Conductor of the RIAS Kammerchor in Berlin to direct the Jersey Chamber Orchestra.

Members of the Jersey Chamber Orchestra also went into nine schools across Jersey, engaging with over 1000 school children about the music of Mozart.
