St Botolph’s Music Society is back!

Yes, after two years of silence we were thrilled to be back in March to fill St Botolph’s Church with wonderful music once again. Our Gala Concert featured an amazing Beethoven Piano Concerto double bill with Noriko Ogawa and Philip Smith returning to Colchester. These acclaimed pianists have a long association with SBMS orchestra and we were delighted to work with them once again. In May, Rebecca Welham was awesome in her performance of Dvorak’s Cello Concerto and our first season back finished in July with George Ireland giving a masterful performance of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 23 alongside Haydn’s Symphony No 99.

We are now putting together our 2022 – 2023 concert season programme. To keep in touch as the programme develops why not sign up to our email newsletter? Click here to subscribe
