Opportunity for GCSE Music Students! 

One of the set works on your syllabus is Mozart’s Symphony number 40 in G Minor. 

You have a unique opportunity to hear this work played live by a symphony orchestra this week end in a concert in the Herne Hill Music Festival. 


In a live performance you get additional insight into how the themes get passed between the sections of the orchestra. As well as just listening, you get to SEE how this piece fits together. You can see at first hand the instruments of the orchestra that are involved. 

In this concert you will also hear a symphony by Mozart’s older friend and mentor Joseph Haydn. There will be similarities and differences between them in this key period in the development of the classical symphony which was happening in Vienna at this time. Also on the programme is a piano concerto by Mozart. Again you can listen for common characteristics across the three works. 

As a special opportunity for music students, the conductor Rupert Bond, an experienced music educator, invites you to attend a rehearsal of this work before the concert, so you can observe how he works with the orchestra on the final finishing touches for a concert performance. He will provide an informal talk to students on this piece. 

We have established a special student rate for this concert, which includes attendance at the rehearsal. 

Here are the details. The concert is on the afternoon of Sunday 16 October at St Faiths Church, Red Post Hill North Dulwich SE24 9JQ starting at 3:45. This is the final concert in the Herne Hill Festival hernehillfestival.org. Tickets are £12 and £8 – the special student discount is £5. This option is not available online but will be offered at the door. 

The rehearsal of the symphony starts at 2pm in the church hall adjacent to St Faiths church. If you would like to attend this please let us know in advance by contacting Roger, the orchestra manager rqmundy@btinternet.com
