Concert on Saturday 14 October 2017
7.30 pm
Brentwood Ursuline Convent High School, Queens' Road, Brentwood CM14 4EX
Mozart and Mahler, both outsiders who made their careers in Vienna, both challenging the expectations of the Vienna of their time, both sadly short-lived but who left large legacies of beautiful music for us. We are delighted to welcome two soloists who are no strangers to Brentwood: Lydia Caines who is the soloist in Mozart's youthful concerto, written in Salzburg before his move to Vienna, and Chloë Treharne, who is the soloist in the final movement of Mahler's gentle and intensely lyrical fourth symphony, with its depiction of a child's view of heaven.  The concert starts with one of Mozart's most popular Viennese compositions, the playful overture to his opera the Marriage of Figaro.

The Brentwood Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) brings together professional musicians and experienced amateurs from the Brentwood area and further afield to perform four concerts a year in and around Brentwood, Essex.
Come and play in the BPO


The BPO rehearses twice a week for a month before each concert: Sundays 2.30 - 5.00 pm and Tuesdays 7.45 - 9.45 pm at Brentwood Ursuline Convent High School, Queens’ Road, Brentwood, Essex CM14 4EX.  With busy schedules, we recognise that not everyone can make every rehearsal. Two of the rehearsals are usually for strings only.


The BPO's annual subscription for players for the 2016-17 season is £60 with single concert subscriptions of £20 per concert (with concessions half price). For UK tax payers, subscriptions are eligible for GiftAid.  New players do not pay for their first concert with the BPO. If you would like to play in the BPO (no audition required), please contact us.
