ABACO CULTURAL SOCIETY
The Abaco Cultural Society presented two concerts by The Bahamas Concert Orchestra, the first at Hope Town on 29th November and the second in Marsh Harbour on 30th November. Both concerts were very well received and many of the audience commented on how pleasant it was to have the opportunity on Abaco to hear such fine music played so well.
The orchestra played several classical pieces including Entrance of the Sirdar; Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring; Dance of the Hours; and works by Mozart, Haydn and Johann Strauss. There were also modern pieces including The Syncopated Clock, From a Distance, A Whiter Shade of Pale, Teddy Bear's Picnic, Bare Necessities and Moonlight Nights in Nassau. Christmas was close enough to include Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Mary's Boy Child and a piece, Santa at the Symphony, that combined a medley of favourite classics with traditional carols.
The Bahamas Concert Orchestra was conducted by Philip Anderson, supported by Concert Master Jennifer Hudson. It was Mrs Hudson, the wife of John Hudson of BEC on Abaco, who formed The Bahamas Concert Orchestra in February 1991 and who now oversees the planning of the programme and training of the orchestra.Table of ContentsCopyright © 1997-1998
