The first performance by the Haydn Chamber Orchestra in 2015 will be a concert in aid of the Harington Scheme and Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospice. They are a group of brilliant musicians, many of whom could have become professional, but who chose another path. Since the very early days, it has attracted top musicians to work with it without fees, among them are Sir Colin Davies, Sir Andrew Davis, Imogen Cooper and Natalie Clein.
The concert takes place on Febraury 7 2015 at St Michael’s Church, Highgate. It is an exciting line-up. The conductor will be Robin O'Neil. In the past few seasons Robin O’Neill has conducted the Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus (with whom he gave the Orchestra’s first performance in London’s newly refurbished Royal Festival Hall), London Philharmonic Orchestra, English Chamber Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Belgrade Philharmonic Orchestra, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Trondheim Symphony Orchestra, Bogota Philharmonic Orchestra, Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Nordic Chamber Orchestra, City of London Sinfonia, Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa Japan and the Orchestras of the Guildhall School of Music, Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, where he is professor of conducting.
The soloist will be pianist Charles Owen, a local musician with an international reputation. He is recognised as one of the finest British pianists of his generation with an extensive series of performances and recordings to his name. Charles has appeared at London’s Barbican and Queen Elizabeth Hall and regularly gives recitals at the Wigmore Hall and Kings Place.
