Twilight series of concerts planned for Cathedral

Sinfonia Viva has teamed up with Derby Cathedral to develop a special Twilights series of four concerts over the coming months.

The first Twilights concert will be held on Wednesday November 2 at 7.30pm under the baton of Viva’s principal conductor Duncan Ward, pictured above.

This will be followed by a further evening concert at the Cathedral in March 2017 as well as earlier drive time concerts in February and April.

The November 2 programme, entitled Classical Masters will feature Haydn’s Symphony No 22 – Philosopher, Mozart’s Violin Concerto No.5 and Dvorak’s Serenade for Strings.

The series is a key element in the Cathedral’s two-year cultural audience development programme which has been supported with a £80,000 Arts Council England grant.
