Art: Music: Dewsbury Minster the venue for Orchestra of Opera North concert
Nov 12 2010 by Val Javin, Huddersfield Daily Examiner
BE serenaded by the Orchestra of Opera North at an intimate concert in Dewsbury.
A special programme featuring acclaimed works by Dvorák and Bach will feature at the event at Dewsbury Minster.
With direction from the Orchestra of Opera North’s Leader, David Greed, the programme is designed to highlight the ensemble talent of the orchestra to best advantage.
David Greed was appointed Leader in the newly formed orchestra in 1978, making him the youngest leader in the country – he has not only held the position in Opera North’s orchestra, but also in various other prestigious orchestras throughout the region.
The concert soloist will be the orchestra’s accomplished principal flute Kevin Gowland.
Kevin joined the orchestra in 2005, leaving the City of Birmingham’s Symphony Orchestra where he was a section leader for 17 years.
The concert takes place on Thursday, November 25, at 7.30pm at Dewsbury Minster because of renovation work at Dewsbury Town Hall.
There will be a pre-concert discussion at 6.40pm.
