FOR its next performance, the Hillingdon Philharmonic Orchestra invites you to an autumn concert of classical favourites.

The programme will include Grieg’s incredible Piano Concerto in A minor, for which piano soloist Bocheng Wang will join the orchestra.

Bocheng’s career began at a celebratory concert in honour of the Queen’s 90th birthday, when he made his debut with the London Mozart Players.

Since then, he has received numerous awards, including a Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artist Award from the Making Music Foundation.

This award is supporting Bocheng’s performance in Hillingdon.  

The concert will begin with Sibelius’ hugely popular Finlandia. The composer’s patriotic tone poem is now regarded by many as Finland’s unofficial national anthem.             

Dvořák's Symphony No.9 From the New World will complete the programme in style.

With its famous slow movement reminding us all of the original Hovis bread TV advert, it’s hard to find another classical work so beloved and recognised by so many.     

Hillingdon Philharmonic Orchestra now has more than 60 registered members. In addition to countless concerts at venues throughout Hillingdon, the group has also performed at the Queen Elizabeth Hall and Southwark Cathedral.

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