For its 22nd Hexagon concert, HSO is delighted to welcome Dominic Sedgwick, baritone, to perform Mahler’s deeply moving Songs of a Wayfarer. Dominic is a recent graduate of the prestigious Jette Parker Young Artist Programme at the Royal Opera House and has been selected as a Rising Star of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment for the 2020/21 season. For the first time in its 51 years, HSO is performing Beethoven’s famous Symphony No 9, ‘Choral’. This potent statement of brotherhood and fellowship reaches a glorious affirmation in its final movement when the orchestra is joined by singers from local choirs and soloists from Opera Prelude.
