Live classical music will return to St Albans when the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra stages its first concert for 18 months.
The long-awaited concert will take place in St Saviour's Church at 7.30pm on Saturday, September 25.
The orchestra is looking forward to welcoming back its loyal audience and promises to give a performance worth waiting for.
Joining the Amadeus orchestra will be oboe soloist Henrietta Cooke.
The programme opens with Ibert's Hommage à Mozart, an exuberant tribute to Mozart, which is followed by the delightful Oboe Concerto in C (K.314) by Mozart.
After the interval, Vivaldi's contemplative Sinfonia 'Al Santo Sepolcro' in B minor (RV169) gives pause for reflection before the concert concludes with Mendelssohn's brilliant Symphony no. 4 (Italian).
The orchestra will be joined by Los Angeles-born conductor Elias Brown.
