Mozart was the composer whom Tchaikovsky revered.  We start with the overture to Mozart's opera Cosi fan Tutte and will then be joined by two of our own principal players as soloists in his popular concerto for flute and harp.  For the second half we turn to Tchaikovsky and his final work, his sixth symphony - a powerful work of extreme passions and contrasts.  If you like Tchaikovsky, you will be pleased to know we have more Tchaikovsky in February when we perform his virtuoso and joyfully lyrical violin concerto.

Tickets are £12 on the night (£6 for those aged 18 and under) or £10 (and £6 for those aged 18 or under) if bought in advance.  

Online booking (with a booking fee) is now open at wegottickets.  Online booking closes at 6pm on the day before the concert. Tickets will also be available nearer the concert (without booking fee) for payment in cash from The Shenfield Wine Company, 86 Hutton Road, Shenfield CM15 8NB.

There will be free parking for audience and players in the Brentwood Ursuline Convent High School car park in Queen's Road.  Please note that the nearby multi-storey carpark shuts at 9pm.

Come and play in the Brentwood Philharmonic Orchestra

If you are looking for an Essex orchestra to join, the Brentwood Philharmonic Orchestra rehearses at Brentwood Ursuline Convent High School, Queen's Road, Brentwood, Essex CM14 4EX twice a week for a month before each concert: Sundays 2.30 - 5.00 pm and Tuesdays 7.45 - 9.45 pm.  With busy schedules, we recognise that not everyone can make every rehearsal. Two of the rehearsals are usually for strings only.
