7.30 PM SATURDAY 7TH MAY 2016
School Hall, Eton College
Dove There Was A Child
Copland Billy the Kid
Grieg Peer Gynt
Dove's joyous There was a Child is an oratorio that traces a young life, from birth through childhood to young manhood, through a sequence of poems. Billy the Kid is one of Copland's most popular and widely performed pieces. The ballet is most famous for its incorporation of several cowboy tunes and American folk songs. We finish with the ever-popular Peer Gynt, music from which is included in the BBC's Ten Pieces for schools.

Slough Philharmonic has been rooted in the community for more than 70 years from its visionary war-time birth to its current dynamic involvement with the town’s schools and music-lovers throughout the area. The chorus and orchestra were founded in 1941 by SEGRO (then Slough Estates Ltd) which despite the outbreak of World War Two in 1939 pursued a far-sighted policy enabling people to enjoy artistic, cultural and sporting activities locally. Slough Phil is still generously supported by SEGRO plc. Its twin structure of orchestra and chorus is its strength, allowing members to perform a hugely-varied repertoire (see our concerts page) from the great symphonies, showpiece concertos and choral works to pop classics, musicals, jazz and opera.
