What makes an orchestra like HCO tick? Fundamentally, it is the deep desire of a dedicated group of musicians to enjoy, together, something profoundly important to them and to share this experience with the wider community. We are hugely grateful to our followers, both new and old for their support, which enables our continuing programme of concert making to thrive.

The HCO will present two concerts on Saturday July 8th in St.Mary's Church, Hitchin, the first at 4pm - Music for Strings and Harp - and the second at 8.30pm - Bach by candlelight. These events, given as part of this year’s Hitchin Festival, see the orchestra continue to deepen its partnership with national profile musicians David Murphy, Warwick Cole and new to us this summer, Liz Poole and Daniel de Fry.

We would be delighted to welcome you to join us for either or both of these events.

Ticket holders for either or both concerts will be able to get 20% off main courses at Pizza Express, Hitchin on sight of a ticket/stub, for sittings between 1-3pm and 5-7pm on 8th July. The offer is restricted to these times and subject to availability so get your tickets and book a table early if you are interested!
