A NIGHT AT THE OPERA
ALBERT HALLS, STIRLING
7:30pm, Sunday May 7th 2017
“A Night at the Opera” . . . that’s what we’re calling this, our last concert of the season and, as you might expect, it will feature a heady-mix of well-loved arias and overtures from the world of opera – works by Verdi, Puccini, Rossini, Mozart, Bizet and more. A quartet of stars from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Svetlina Stoyanova, Charlotte Drummond, Richard Shaffrey and Chris Nairne, will lead on the arias accompanied throughout by the outstanding Stirling Orchestra – finalists in last year’s BBC Series “All Together Now.” This will be quite an evening – don’t miss it!
Soloists: Svetlina Stoyanova, Charlotte Drummond, Richard Shaffrey and Chris Nairne
Conductor: Stephen Broad
Leader: Joëlle Broad
Tickets £10 adult, £8 concession, £5 students (with ID), £2 children

Formed in 1983 by a small group of amateur musicians, Stirling Orchestra now numbers 65 to 70 players. The membership is drawn largely from the Stirling area, although several come from much further afield, and embraces a wide range of backgrounds and professions, with retirees and full time parents as well as students from Stirling University. Stirling Orchestra performs two or three concerts a year in Stirling’s Albert Halls and presents eclectic repertoire ranging from the ‘classics’ to 20th century, film scores and more. Recent performances include a musical expedition to the South Pole, in which images from Scott’s ill-fated expedition provided the backdrop for Vaughan Williams’s Sinfonia Antartica, and a double matinee for families in which young children danced round the orchestra, while their older siblings filmed the performance and tried their hand at playing the instruments.
