  • Title: Meet the Players « Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra
    Descriptive info: The SPO in rehearsal at Long Melford Church on 15th December 2012.. is the brainchild of, and was founded by, Rattlesden-based.. Leslie Olive.. , who has conducted many of the country s leading orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic, the Philharmonia, London Mozart Players and the English Chamber Orchestra.. He is also the Founder and Artistic Director of the.. English Arts Chorale.. ,.. Conductor of both.. Stowmarket Chorale.. and.. Eye Bach Choir.. , and was until July 2012 Director of the 100-strong boys choir at Colchester Royal Grammar School.. Leslie stood down from his position as Head of Music at the school in 2012 to dedicate himself to the development of the.. Attracting players of true international calibre, the SPO seeks to bring music at the very finest level, not simply to venues such as St Edmundsbury Cathedral, The Apex and Snape Maltings, but to towns and villages less well equipped for orchestral music.. The SPO also works in small ensembles to take music into schools, village halls and churches, hospitals, hospices and care homes, and into the workplace and has already staged a number of community-based events.. Over time it will reach the widest possible cross-section of the Suffolk community.. Another area of activity is the SPO Education Programme.. In conjunction with the inaugural concert, the SPO worked closely with a number of schools throughout Suffolk, including its partner school, King Edward VI School in Bury St Edmunds, and created an opportunity for a group of young people to play alongside the Orchestra during the concert.. In addition, children used the music programmed for the concert as the starting point for an arts project, their work displayed in the Cloisters of St Edmundsbury Cathedral in the week leading up to and including the concert.. These opportunities seem to have made quite an impact, one 14-year old violin player, Kerry Blofield, said:.. It was a bit scary at first but as soon as I started playing it was just brilliant.. Just being surrounded by all those professional players is great.. Hearing all the others play like that I d like to play like that one day.. It s definitely going to inspire me to practice more!.. In its early concerts, the focus of the Orchestra has been on the strings conducted by Leslie Olive.. It is he who said:.. It is.. in the strings that the calibre of this new Orchestra is instantly distinguishable as outstanding.. However, on the 26th May 2013 the Orchestra appeared for the first time in its symphonic glory, with full wind, brass and percussion sections as well as its simply outstanding strings.. The programme of music on 26th May 2013 began at 4.. 00 pm with the buzzing Vaughan Williams Overture The Wasps , followed by the Elgar, Cello Concerto with.. Julian Lloyd Webbe.. r.. as the soloist.. After the Cream Tea Interval the concert continued with another piece by Vaughan Williams, his Symphony No.. 2, London , with its evocation of the Capital awakening to the sound of the Westminster chimes.. LESLIE OLIVE, FOUNDER CONDUCTOR..

A project Julian is passionate about is the Violin Ensemble.. Having taken the idea and some arrangements some years ago to Cala Records,.. The London Sound.. (48 violins and 1 contrabass!) was formed, sadly solely for the ensuing season.. Since then, he has formed his own ensemble mainly from young soloists and Philharmonia players, and directed concerts with both small (4 violins) and large (12 violins) groups at, among other places, the Wigmore Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, Sadler s Wells Theatre, Leicester s de Montfort Hall and the Welsh Millennuim Centre..

The opportunity to lead the SPO is tremendously exciting and I applaud the decision to offer programmes wich are much more cross-repertoire.. I m passionate about the Community and Education components of the Orchestra s programme of work.. Bringing music into the community will be one of the strengths of this new orchestra, and grassroots support for this is essential.. RICHARD MILONE, ASSOCIATE LEADER OF THE ORCHESTRA.. Richard Milone regularly performs in a variety of venues throughout the world ranging from solo concertos, recitals and chamber music to countless opera, chamber and symphony orchestra concerts.. Richard studied at both Yehudi Menuhin and Chethams schools of music followed by graduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.. During this period he started his professional career, freelancing with the Manchester Camerata and the Goldberg Ensemble.. At the age of twenty-two, he was appointed as principal second violin in Opera North, Leeds.. A year later he was appointed to the same position in the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London.. From his position in that orchestra Richard got to work with such artists as Georg Solti, Bernard Haitink, Placido Domingo, Luciano Pavarotti and Darcey Bussell.. Richard s association with the Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra began in April 2012, when he came to Suffolk to lead a quartet of string players for the SPO s first Education and Community Project.. Oh, and just in case you were wondering: Richard is indeed the younger brother of Julian Milone!..

  • Title: Community Concerts « Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra
    Descriptive info: Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra’s COMMUNITY CONCERTS.. Could you organise an SPO Community Concert in your village or community?.. What is a Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra Community Concert?.. A one-hour informal concert given by a small ensemble of our players, typically four, with lunch or tea provided, in a community venue.. Who is it for?.. The purpose of an SPO Community Concert is to provide access to great music to people who might not otherwise encounter it because:.. They are less mobile and can’t or don’t want to travel to events.. They are older and don’t want to go out in the evenings.. Classical music is not part of their experience.. They are deterred by the cost.. Who comes to them?.. It is likely that an event of this type will appeal to people who already have a love of music and hear it from time to time;they of course are welcome too, but it is axiomatic that we try to reach people for whom it will be an unusual, or even a first-time experience.. What do the audience experience?.. Lifts to the event, and home again, for anyone who needs them, provided from a trustworthy local volunteer.. A personal welcome and introduction from Leslie Olive or another member of the SPO leadership team.. A concert by a quartet of musicians playing music carefully chosen to be attractive without “dumbing down” for about an hour.. A finger buffet lunch following the concert.. A simple souvenir, such as an SPO pen, as a memento of the occasion.. The Lunch.. A finger buffet lunch is provided by local people, who donate their time and the ingredients used.. They also make up the team to prepare, serve, and clear up.. How much are the tickets?.. We aim for these concerts to be free of charge.. This is achieved by a combination of business sponsorship or grants to cover the unavoidable costs, local people providing and preparing the lunch, parish councils providing the venue free or at a reduced rate, and so on.. After the first event, in Rattlesden, some members of  ...   memorable event which I m glad I accepted the invitation to attend.. It was totally free and included a magnificent buffet lunch.. To those who didn t read their newsletter carefully, they missed a real treat! From a very grateful reader.. Signed: M.. S.. Voluntary Local Organisers could this be you?.. The success of this vision depends entirely upon our finding voluntary local organizers.. This can be an individual working with an informal group of friends, or an established organisation, club, or institute.. The Volunteer Local Organiser undertakes the following responsibilities:.. Audience creation.. – Publicity using word of mouth, features and notices in village and church magazines and newsletters, simple posters and flyers.. The target is to have the hall comfortably full.. (Note: The SPO can provide a simple poster/flyer template for you to photocopy, also wording for village magazine articles etc.. ).. Stewarding and venue management.. – Making sure the hall is ready, open, heated and lit, “all systems ‘go’” in good time, there are stewards to put and put away chairs and assist the audience as necessary, and closing up after the event.. Creation and distribution of tickets.. – Useful to have tickets numbered with a simple serial number (can be done by hand) to keep a track of how many people are coming.. Making sure the tickets are readily available.. (Note: SPO can provide a template for tickets, or actual tickets as you prefer.. Lunch oversight.. – organising a local team who will donate their time and the ingredients.. Being the point of contact for the SPO link person.. Contact with the body responsible for the Village Hall:.. it is helpful to the project if the body responsible for the hall will donate its use for this event without charge.. …and sorting out any loose ends either personally or by touching base with the SPO link person.. To discuss organising an SPO Community Concert in your village, contact Leslie Olive, Founder Artistic Director.. Email.. or write to him at: 3 Rectory Meadow, Rattlesden, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk IP30 0RE or call 01449 737766..
