Huntingdonshire Philharmonic

The Huntingdonshire Philharmonic, affectionately known as Hunts Phil, performs five or six concerts each year.

We perform a variety of choral and orchestral works to suit every taste. Our Christmas performances are especially popular.

The Society always welcomes new members and at present is keen to attract additional singers, brass and string players. The emphasis of rehearsals is that of enjoyment and learning, whilst working to present performances of a high standard to our audiences.

If you are interested in joining Hunts Phil, please email secretary@huntsphil.org.uk

We look forward to performing for you.

Next Concert:
Saturday 10th May, 7:30pm

Hinchingbrooke Performing Arts Centre

Sibelius - Symphony No. 6
Elgar - Violin Concerto

Soloist Mathieu van Bellen

After the energy released in Sibelius's 5th symphony his 6th is much more reflective in mood, returning to the modality that had been a feature of his music from the beginning. Scored for a large orchestra, his use of instrumental resources is restrained and the whole symphony is a fascinating exercise in subtlety and concentrated thought. We welcome back young Dutch virtuoso Mathieu van Bellen to perform Elgar's Violin Concerto, one of Elgar's own favourite works.

Tickets: £12 (students £6) available in advance from Anabel Capon (01832 274834 or
