The Exchange are delighted to welcome the Charnwood Orchestra for the first time...
The Charnwood Orchestra is based near Loughborough and performs several concerts a year across Leicestershire. With a rich variety of programmes and the regular participation of superb solo artists from all over the country the orchestra is popular among players and audiences alike.
The Orchestra has around sixty regular musicians, most of whom live in the Charnwood area. Since its founding it has been a focal point for local musical talent, and today attracts players of all ages who perform together with genuine enthusiasm and musicality.
The orchestra was founded in 1973 by Joseph O’Reilly, Director of Music at Rawlins College in Quorn (of Quorn Hunt fame). Since that time it has enjoyed the direction of several conductors, each of whom has brought something new to the orchestra in style and taste.
As well as performing regularly around Leicestershire, the orchestra has also made several successful tours to France, Scotland and Ireland as well as to different parts of England, all of which have been very well received.
Currently under the direction of Nic Fallowfield, the orchestra performs a very wide range of exciting and imaginative programmes and continues to grow in reputation.
Also featuring solo Violinist Ruth Rogers.
Sunday 24th May, 7pm.
