Reading Symphony Orchestra Summer 2019 Concert
Join Reading Symphony Orchestra
for the Summer 2019 concert of our 2018-19 season!
Debussy's Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun sparked a musical revolution. Telling the tale of a mythical faun who, enchanted
by nymphs, drifts off to sleep to have wondrous dreams, the heat of a summer's afternoon in the forest is evoked through beautiful
melodies and lush harmonies.
The orchestra will then be joined by oboist Ewan Millar, 2018 winner of the RSO / Hickies Young Musicians' Competition,
for Navarro's Legacy Concerto. Ewan, a student at Reading School, is a phenomenal player and principal oboe with the
Berkshire Youth Symphony Orchestra and the National Youth Wind Ensemble of Great Britain.
The second half of the concert will feature Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade – an exhilarating journey of love, intrigue and
adventure based on tales from the Arabian Nights. Depicted by a solo violin, Princess Scheherazade saves her life by captivating the
Sultan with stories of Sinbad and other tales.
A perfect concert for a summer's evening!
