Classic night in store at Cheltenham Town Hall

It's a night of classics for the National Symphony Orchestra's second concert of the season at Cheltenham Town Hall on Friday (December 3) at 7.30pm.

Conductor Rimma Sushanskaya and pianist John Lenehan lead the way as Mozart's most popular overture, The Marriage of Figaro - just five minutes in length but bouncing with 18th Century comical verve and excitement - opens the show.

This is followed by one of the most popular concertos in the repertoire, Beethoven's glorious Emperor, originally dedicated to Napoleon and among the most noble and uplifting pieces of the 19th Century...the 2nd and 3rd movements in particular are among the most played on classical radio stations across the globe.

And finally, rivalled only by Elgar's serenade for the same forces, Tchaikovsky's 30-minute Serenade for Strings rounds off the evening in traditional Russian style, full of melody, emotion and passion.

A pre-concert talk takes place from 6.30pm to 7pm. Free entry using your ticket for the concert.
