The Huntingdonshire Philharmonic Society, 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 email@example.com
We look forward to performing for you.

|Beethoven||Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”|
|Nicola Ihnatowicz, soprano|
|Harriet Webb, mezzo soprano|
|Nick Allen, tenor|
|Dominic Sedgwick, baritone|
Beethoven’s “Pastoral” symphony belongs to a long tradition of descriptive music. Nature in rustic country scenes and the inevitable storm are all present – with descriptive titles to match, but Beethoven’s own subtitle, “More an expression of feeling than a painting”, perhaps gives the real key to this symphony’s enduring appeal.
The Harmoniemesse or “Wind-band Mass” was Haydn’s last grand full scale work, and his only Mass to use a full complement of wind instruments. Sections of magnificent choral writing integrate with passages for soloists, and in the final climactic ending Haydn adds his farewell as the last notes of the “Dona nobis pacem” soar heavenwards.
Tickets: £14 for raked seating and row L, £12 for all other seats on the flat (students half price) available in advance from Anabel Capon (01832 274834 or firstname.lastname@example.org) and will also be available on the door.
