This is a special concert by the combined Havant Orchestras to celebrate our memories of our founder and outstanding musical director for 50 years, Peter Craddock, BEM, who passed away in 2017.
We are extremely grateful to former Bob Harding bursary holders and current distinguished conductors Mark Wigglesworth and Toby Purser for their help in setting up and conducting this concert, and to our current bursary holder Stefano Boccacci who will be conducting the last movement of Maurice Blower’s Symphony in C, for which Peter prepared and conducted HSO’s World Premiere performance in 2008.
