The Bardi Symphony Orchestra are promising a spectacular finale to our Gigs in the Gardens summer series. The local musicians will be performing a raft of popular film and stage classics before a firework encore.
The Bardi’s new season opens with well-known music from two great Austrian composers. The Orchestra’s own wind soloists begin the concert with Mozart’s sublime Concertante for Winds and orchestra, with the towering “Romantic” fourth symphony by Bruckner as a contrast in the second half.
