The UC Christchurch Youth Orchestra will present “Origins” at the Oamaru Opera House - a full programme of well-known works from the orchestral and wind band repertoire. “Origins”.
The orchestra will be conducted by Helen Renaud and will be performing a wide range of music inspired by Folksong. As well as performing some much-loved repertoire for full orchestra, the CYO will divide into string orchestra and concert band to perform music works for different combinations.
The programme will include Orpheus in the Underworld by Offenbach, the English Folk Song Suite by Vaughan-Williams, Grieg’s Norwegian Airs for Strings, the wonderful Vlatava from Ma Vlast by Smetana and a few movements from the well-known Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky.
