Harrow Chamber Orchestra is on tour in Singapore!

The Harrow Chamber Orchestra comprises most of the music scholars at Harrow. It has an extensive repertoire, stretching from the Baroque to Modern era. The Orchestra’s current tour of Singapore and Bangkok is a prelude to future concerts this year at St John’s Smith Square, Speech Room at Harrow and a tour of Russia in 2019.

Come and watch them at the Esplanade Concourse where they presents a selection of popular string orchestral works, and music for smaller string ensembles over two evenings, including Edward Elgar’s Serenade for Strings in E Minor, Op.20 and Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony, Op. 4.  The concert is free and open to the public.
