Forty Favourites

Ellen Patrick (5th desk, 2nd violins … as well as a Ruddigore bridesmaid) invites us all to the Kirkcaldy Orchestral Society (KOS) spring concert in Dunfermline High School at 7.00pm on Friday 17 March.

The programme is varied. There’s a great soloist (Gregor Blamey) for Gershwin’s “Rapsody in Blue”. We’re also doing “Overture from Candide” and “Divertimento” by Bernstein, a suite of English Dances by Malcolm Arnold, Peter Maxwell Davis’s “Orkney Wedding with Sunrise”, the foot-tapping “Pops Hoe-down” by Hayman and a piece based on Scottish melodies called “Fanfare and Fugato”, written for the conductor, Graeme Wilson, by the KOS oboist, John Gourlay. Pupils from Dunfermline High School will also be performing. More details if you click the image.

DGASS members who were able to go to last year’s concert enjoyed the experience, so Ellen looks forward to seeing you on 17 March. There should be plenty of tickets available at the door, but they’re also available in advance from Fire Station Creative in Carnegie Drive (Wed–Sat, 10.00am–4.00pm; Fri/Sat, 5.00pm–11.00pm).

Next appearance

Your next chance to see the Society on stage at Carnegie Hall, Dunfermline will be on 13–15 February 2025 for the première run of The Jury’s Out.
