The 41st concert season for the Northumberland Orchestra & Choir is about to begin and we are excited! This season we welcome back two beloved friends of the NOC. In our opening program we will transport you ‘East of the Danube’ with the help of Canadian piano virtuoso Anastasia Rizikov performing Franz Liszt’s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in Eb+. ‘Christmas in Northumberland’ will bring you on a world tour as the choir & orchestra present seasonal music from near and far, featuring soprano Stephanie Kraus. Our February program is sure to beat the winter blues and get your heart racing as we welcome back the ‘Sultans of String’ who are guaranteed to have your toes tapping and hands clapping! The 2017-18 concert season will conclude with ‘Darkness into Light’, leading us to the return of longer days and the warmth and energy of Spring. We have something for everyone to enjoy; I hope you will choose to join us for a very exciting season of music making.
