Sat 22nd June 2019 - Summer Concert (Holy Trinity Church, Winchester)
WCO celebrated midsummer in the lovely cool surroundings of Holy Trinity Church, Winchester. The programme began with Chanson de Nuit by Elgar, followed by Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream Overture plus, from the same work, the Nocturne, Intermezzo and the famous 'Wedding March'. The second half opened with Schubert's Overture in the Italian style, and we rounded off the night with a performance of the "Clock" Symphony (no. 101) by Haydn.

WCO welcomed in the New Year in a new venue for us, Holy Trinity in Winchester. We were delighted to be received by an almost packed church! The concert helped to raise funds for Southampton-based charity 'Gift of Sight'.
