Saturday 7.30pm 2nd July 2022 Holy Innocents, Fallowfield

Laura Wood

Works inspired by the sea are the order of the day in our
Summer Concert, beginning with Mendelssohn’s delightful Hebrides
Overture – inspired by a visit to Fingal’s Cave in the Inner Hebrides
on one of his many trips to Scotland. Mezzo-soprano Laura Wood,
making her debut appearance with Gorton Philharmonic, will then perform Elgar’s
beautiful and evocative Sea Pictures. The second half of
the concert showcases the exotic sounds of RimskyKorsakov’s Scheherazade; his much-loved musical
interpretation of a collection of tales from the Middle East known as One Thousand and One Nights.
