I WAS GLAD - Centenary Concert celebrating the music of Sir Hubert Parry
This concert has been planned to mark two important centennial occasions - the end of the Great War, and the death of two outstanding musicians closely connected with Harrogate: Sir Charles Hubert Parry and Ernest Bristow Farrar. It also opens the appeal to finance the flood lighting of the exterior of both the Royal Hall and the towns principal War Memorial.
Parry conducted the concert on the opening night of the Kursaal (now called the Royal Hall) in May 1903 and the concert included his Incidental music to Hypatia, a rousing piece which we believe has not been performed again live since 1903! Other Parry works include his well known I Was Glad which is often performed at great state occasions.
Harrogate Choral Society, currently celebrating their 70th anniversary, will be joined by the Chapel Choir of Exeter College, Oxford where Parry studied who are conducted by Organ Scholar James Andrew Short.
The orchestra for the evening will be the Amici Ensemble who will be conducted by HCS Music Director Andrew Padmore
