Worthing Philharmonic Orchestra present their Summer Concert

The Worthing Philharmonic Orchestra are performing their summer concert, which was originally planned for March 2020. To be able to hear them accompany the Worthing Wurlitzer playing Poulenc Organ Concerto for organ, strings and timpani, will be an unforgettable experience and one not to miss! Composed in 1938, it has become one of the most frequently performed pieces of the genre not written in the Baroque period.

Soloist Richard Gowers has performed extensively as a song accompanist and chamber pianist, conductor and organist. He currently serves as organist of the Old Royal Naval College Chapel and teaches undergraduate Music at the University of Cambridge, combining these commitments with a busy and varied freelance career.

Completing the programme are two orchestral masterpieces with Brahms Symphony no 4 and Elgar Enigma Variations. This features fourteen variations on an original theme, one of which, Nimrod, was recently played at the funeral of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
