Essex Youth Orchestra Playing Verdi's Overture from 'La Forza del Destino', 1973
First movement from Verdi's overture from 'La Forza del Destino', played by the Essex Youth Orchestra
Programme of the Braintree concert
Essex Record Office (C/DE 34/2)
The first movement played during the Essex Youth Orchestra Braintree Concert, Verdi’s Overture from ‘La Forza del Destino’ (SA 10/1/1/14/1). The orchestra also played Korsakov’s Scheherazade: Symphonic Suite and Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for Oboe, Clarinet, Horn and Bassoon during the concert.
The concert was performed as part of the Braintree and District Arts Festival on 4 May 1973 at the United Reformed Church, London Road (now Christchurch). Do the acoustics in the building still sound the same? Does the Arts Festival still encompass similar performances?
