The University’s Symphony Chorus is excited to perform Parry’s much-loved coronation anthem and intrigued to perform a work of deep intensity, commissioned from Gerald Finzi, a self-confessed agnostic, by the Reverend William Hussey. In the 100th anniversary of the first performance of Stravinsky’s controversial Firebird Suite,the Symphony Orchestra has two Russian masterpieces to perform, both originally composed as ballet music. The Festive Season without the Sugar Plum Fairy? Unthinkable!
