Welcome to the Somerset County Orchestra. We are based in Taunton and are made up of both amateur and professional players. Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings at Queen’s College and we give three or four concerts a year covering a wide ranging repertoire.
Saturday 10th March 2018 – Queen’s College, Taunton – 7.30pm
Soloist – Weng Soon Tee
Schumann – Manfred Overture
Saint-Saens – Piano Concerto no 5 (The Egyptian)
Rachmaninov – Symphony no 2
We are delighted to welcome back Weng Soon Tee to play the popular Piano Concerto no 5 (The Egyptian) by Saint-Saens. The concert also includes Rachmaninov’s wonderfully romantic Symphony no 2.
SCO are pleased to be holding a retiring collection to support the charity Mary’s Meals which provides school feeding programmes in some of the world’s poorest communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education. For more information about the charity, visit their website http://www.marysmeals.org.uk.
We’d love you to support us and come and listen to us play. The details of our next concert are above and details of our future concerts can be found under the What’s On tab.
