Stirling Orchestra are visiting Oban this Saturday to share some musical love at the Corran Halls.

Stirling Orchestra was formed in 1983 by a small group of amateur musicians, and has now grown to a large orchestra of around 70 players. The membership is drawn mostly from the Stirling area, although many come from much further afield, across Central Scotland, and embraces a wide range of backgrounds and professions, with retirees and full time parents, as well as students from Stirling University.

Stirling Orchestra performs two or three concerts a year in Stirling’s Albert Halls and presents an eclectic repertoire ranging from the ‘classics’ to 20th century film scores and more.

On their visit to Oban they will be playing Mendelssohn – Symphony No.3 “Scottish”, Haydn – Trumpet Concerto, and Rossini – The Thieving Magpie Overture.

Conductor for the evening is Stephen Broad, leader is Joëlle Broad, with Elliot Harris on solo trumpet.

The concert on Saturday March 7 starts at 7pm and tickets are £10, £8 (conc), £5 (students with ID), £2 (child), and are available from the Corran Halls box office by calling 01631 567333.
