This lunchtime, take a trip to the countryside without leaving the city! Our concert starts in the peaceful calm of a forest with Mendelssohn’s overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream and continues in Anna Clyne’s beautiful elegy, Within Her Arms. A quick trip to the American Mid-West with Copland before Bernstein’s bustling Three Dance Episodes: On the Town brings us back to central Belfast with a bang!
