St James Church, Woburn Road, Lower Hutt,

Conductor: Mark Carter

Soloist: Malavika Gopal

The concert opens with Franz von Suppé's Overture to "Poet and Peasant".
Suppe is known for his light operas in the Romantic style and the overtures in particular
 are a  popular part of concert repertoire today.  Following on from the"Light Cavalry" Overture
 in our last concert, we will be presenting another of his lively works.

The second half of the concert is Cezar Franck's "Symphony in D minor".  This Romantic style Symphony of great beauty has three movements. It was one of his last compositions. Interval
