Welcome to HVO 

the Hutt Valley's own orchestra.


French FlairJuly 15th Concert :  French Flair

With Mark Carter our new Music Director

Our next concert, French Flair, is part of the Hutt City Council's new Winter Festival celebrations. It is not exclusively French music, as it starts with Franz von Suppé's lively "Poet and Peasant" Overture. Suppé was born in what is now Croatia, but probably thought of himself as Austrian (because he was, then) and is buried in Vienna. We can happily call the overture à la Française and enjoy it before moving on to music by Saint-Saëns and Cézar Franck who were definitely French.

We welcome Malavika Gopal  as the violin soloist in the "Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso". 

The concert concludes with Cézar Franck's "Symphony in D minor". Come and hear this moving composition with its memorable tunes and wonderful orchestration for all sections of the orchestra.
