Formed in 2013 for a ‘one off’ Charity Concert for Basingstoke Lions, the Heritage Light Orchestra’s appearance in this concert will be their 22nd!
Bringing together colleagues and students from the county music services and players who had played for shows that he had conducted, Neil Streeter gathered a group of players who were used to playing on just a few rehearsals. Some players move away and others join but, for most concerts, the orchestra includes between 30 and 40 players who welcome the opportunity to play this type of orchestral music.
With repertoire ranging from show and film music, via light orchestral favourites to well-known operatic and choral pieces, and by inviting experienced local singers to join them, the orchestra has built up a reputation for performing enjoyable and varied programmes in a relaxed atmosphere.
To date they have accompanied three ‘Festival of Choirs’ concerts at the Anvil , a 25th Anniversary concert for St. Michael’s Hospice at Winchester Cathedral , and a Mayor’s Christmas Concert as well as giving various charity concerts in halls, churches , a carn and even a garden in the Newbury / Basingstoke area.
They are delighted to have this opportunity to devote a programme to great film music.
