Welcome to Oldham Symphony Orchestra
Our upcoming concert is an extravaganza of Russian music with perrenial Oldham Symphony Orchestra favourite Pyotr Tchaikovsky. His nutcracker suite contains some of the most well-known pieces in ballet, and its Christmas tale will delight all year around. The fairy's kiss, another ballet, was composed by Stravinsky in a "Tchaikovsky" style, but far from being a mere homage this piece is unmistakibly his own. We round out the selection with the rousing and romantic Romeo and Juliet symphonic poem, musically telling the story of the play that Tchaikovsky so admired.
- Igor Stravinsky: Le baiser de la fée (The Fairy's Kiss)
- Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suite
- Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet
Tickets are £10, available on the door, with £6 for concessions and £3 for children under 16.

Website back up again (by Addie on 7 May 2013, 6:19 p.m.)
Hi everyone! That's the website back up again. Apologies for it taking so long; had a poor combination of people's holidays (including my own!) making it difficult. Hopefully you'll enjoy the slightly new-look to the site as well.
