Concert Season 2020/2021
at the Assembly Hall Theatre, Tunbridge Wells
WELCOME TO THE RTWSO’S 2020/21 SEASON
Plans for our new series of concerts have now been finalised and we are looking forward to welcoming you to our audience. We have something for everybody: wonderful soloists like Stephen Hough, the young baritone Benjamin Appl and pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason who is making such a name for herself, as well as a return visit from clarinettist Katherine Lacy. A special feature is our March concert when we celebrate International Women’s Day with three wonderful pieces composed by women and conducted by Alice Farnham, a first for the RTWSO. Once again we will be running our Education Outreach Programme, inviting pupils from local schools along to workshops and a concert. The March concert also features the much-loved ’Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ to delight young and old alike. The season’s music is wide-ranging, with pieces from favourites like Beethoven and Tchaikovsky along with Ravel, Mendelssohn, Mahler and Sibelius among others. We are also proud to present two new pieces written by local composers, our own bassoonist Philip Le Bas and Sylvia Villa. As always, there are very substantial discounts for season tickets which are actually cheaper than they were last year!
We look forward to seeing you.
