Norwich Philharmonic Society has announced its 2018-19 season with a jam-packed programme, ranging from a tribute to the Armistice centenary to the romantic music of Tchaikovsky.
The society was first established in 1841 and has been at the heart of classical music in the city ever since with a full-size symphony orchestra and mixed chorus of 120 voices.
The new season kicks off on Saturday, November 3 at St Andrew's Hall from 7.30pm with an Armistice Centenary Concert.
The tribute will feature music from composer George Butterworth who tragically lost his life in the war.
The second-half will begin with Elgar's Spirit of England which is performed by soloist Catherine May and is sung in memory of 'our glorious men'.
