A pretty big deal by the Northern School of Music! Its 5th annual orchestral concert was another signature mix of contemporary English composers (Gibson and Holst) and well established European masters.
I love the advert for wind players to join the orchestra. So far the wind parts were covered by piano. Probably not what the composers had in mind. Trouble was that the school was mainly filled by female students and wind instruments were often discouraged in female musicians because God forbid you should put anything in your mouth and blow...
