British Invasion

British composers have had a significant impact on orchestras, bands and choirs. This concert will highlight some of the most cherished literature from England. It may seem out of place to include works from Haydn in this concert, however Symphony No. 94 was included in this concert set as it was composed as a part of Haydn’s “London Symphonies” during his tenure in London from 1791-1795. 

  • Gustav Holst (1874-1934) St. Paul’s Suite (1912)
  • Gerald Finzi (1901-1956) Eclogue for Piano and Strings Op. 10 (1957)
  • Featuring Mr. Edward M. Kuhn, Jr.– Piano
  • Edward Elgar (1857-1934) Nimrod (from Enigma Variations) (1898)  (Arr. Rosenhaus)
  • Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809) Symphony No. 94 in G "Surprise" (1791)
