National Capital Orchestra Review

The National Capital Orchestra is a community orchestra based in the ACT, I've been attending their concerts at Llewellyn Hall for a couple of years now and I've never been disappointed.

Yesterday's concert was no exception, all of the performances were enjoyable and a very pleasant way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The varied program of Beethoven (two pieces), Haydn, Adams, & Dvorak was enjoyable and enthusiastically played.

Before the interval the highlight was the Haydn Concerto for Trumpet where soloist Chris Hudson's obvious enjoyment of the Orchestra's work was infectious.

Overall though my favourite piece was the Dvorak Serenade in D minor, op. 44 for Winds, Cello and Double Bass.

It is rare in my (admittedly limited) experience to see the wind instruments getting centre stage like this and it was an excellent piece well played.
