FOR its next performance, Hillingdon Philharmonic Orchestra invites music lovers to a chamber concert that includes classical favourites by Mozart, Haydn and Schubert.

The programme will open with Mozart’s Overture to his opera Cosi Fan Tutte, a musical taster of the things to come.

Haydn’s Symphony No.99 in Eb Major, one of the composer’s 12 ‘London’ symphonies, written at a time when the city was often seen to be the musical capital of Europe, follows.

Haydn ultimately wrote more than 100 symphonies and No.99 is a fine example of his later work, and the first in which he included clarinets.

The concert will conclude with Schubert’s Symphony No.4 (Tragic). Completed when Schubert was just 19, it offers bubbly, youthful vitality.

Hillingdon Philharmonic is now well established with more than 60 registered members, having performed a wide repertoire over the years.

In addition to countless concerts at venues throughout Hillingdon, the group has also performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in London and Southwark Cathedral.

The concert will be led by Lucy Cumming and conducted by the founder of the orchestra, Peter J. Williams.
