After a great success with this concert in 2017, WNO Orchestra makes another midwinter return to Bangor and to our important relationship through Pontio. The Prichard-Jones Hall is our destination for this year’s traditional New Year Concert. Again, we leave the conductor behind and the musicians and audience are brought together for the evening by David Adams, WNO’s Orchestra Leader and Concertmaster.

The concert includes one of the most famous works from Mozart, the Horn Concerto No 4. Surrounding this exciting offering, the ‘PJ’ Hall will resonate to the sounds of the most famous waltzes and polkas from glittering Vienna ballrooms.

Our opener, the fabulous overture to Der Freischutz by Weber, will get us off to a cracking start. Favourite waltzes such as Wine, Women and Song, The Blue Danube and Gold and Silver alongside the Tritsch- Tratsch, Thunder and Lightning and Champagne polkas and the great Radetsky March, will adorn the rip-roaring second half, alongside some of the less familiar fare.

As usual, this is all guaranteed to put a spring back into your post- Christmas step….with some interval surprises thrown in!
