Hounslow Symphony Orch: Saturday 3 December 7:30 pm

We are very pleased to welcome the popular Hounslow Symphony Orchestra to our church, with an exciting programme of Russian favourites! Tickets are available on the door (£14 and £10 concessions) or are cheaper if you buy them in advance from  www.hounslow-symphony.org.uk This terrific orchestra (who have been playing together for 63 years!) usually performs in Osterley, but these three great Romantic works require a larger orchestra and therefore a larger venue! The chairman of this prestigious group says "This is some of the most lush and intensely romantic music ever written. If you've never been to a classical concert before, this will be an excellent place to start."
