Support for the Meon Valley Orchestra’s debut, solo performance

Despite beavering away on affairs of state, three extremely busy local Members of Parliament have found time to voice their support for the Meon Valley Orchestra’s debut, solo performance. The MVO’s concert is at 7.30pm on Saturday 10 March 2018 at the United Reformed Church, 18 Osborne Road South, Fareham, PO17 7UD.

All funds raised will go to the UK Gout Society.

Caroline Dinenage, MP for Gosport and Minister of State for Health and Social Care wished the MVO the very best of luck and hoped for a successful charity concert for a very worthy cause.

Suella Fernandes, MP for Fareham and Under-Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union, hoped that the event would be well supported by the local community, friends and family. She is aware that one in forty people suffer from gout which is a widely misunderstood condition.

George Hollingbery, MP for Meon Valley, thinks it’s wonderful that the MVO began with a handful of folk musicians in Meonstoke and blossomed into a light classical orchestra which has much to offer the cultural life in the Meon Valley and beyond. He wished their forthcoming performance the very best of luck.

The Meon Valley Orchestra’s concert is unique because concert-goers can choose in advance what they wish to hear on the night. They are invited to select their three favourite pieces from the following list.

The Big Country by Jerome Moss, Barber of Seville by Gioacchino Rossini, Crown Imperial by Edward Elgar, On Hearing the First Cuckoo of Spring by Frederick Delius, Dambusters’ March by Eric Coates, Dance of the Hours by Amilcare Ponchielli, English Folk Song Suite as well as Fantasia on Greensleeves both by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Jupiter by Gustav Holst, Marche Slave by Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Nocturne by Felix Mendelsshon, Skyfall by Adele Adkins and Paul Epworth, Pink Panther by Henry Mancini, Redetzky March by Johann Strauss, the Toreador’s Song by George Bizet and Sailing By written by Ronald Binge.

If you would like to come to the concert please send your music choices to giving your name and telephone number. Tickets are £10 each including sumptuous refreshments.
