We’re delighted to announce that Katie Derham is to be the Orchestra’s new President. Katie has been presenting the BBC Proms since 2010, as well as hosting Radio 3’s Afternoon on Three and Breakfast programmes. This autumn she is also appearing in Strictly Come Dancing.
Katie says that she feels honoured to be asked to be our President. We look forward to seeing her at one of our concerts soon.
The Burgess Hill Symphony Orchestra is proud to be working with Ensemble Reza on a Community Orchestra. This unique project is open to anyone who plays an orchestral instrument, and would like to take part. The Orchestra will work on a number of pieces from the BBC’s Ten Pieces initiative, and will perform in a final concert at the King’s Church on 26th November.
BHSO members will take part in the workshops, as will members of Ensemble Reza. Lots of coaching and support will be on offer, so don’t be shy! If you have an instrument which has been gathering dust for a few years, or if you just don’t have other instrumentalists to play along with, this is your chance to get involved.
