Orchestra ready for new season

Tickets for the new Ulster Orchestra season go on sale today with concert-goers now able to see the impact of distinguished principal conductor JoAnn Falletta from New York, who was appointed in May.

A first for the orchestra will be a Taster Concert on September 21, which will feature some of the music from the rest of the season.

The orchestra's chief executive, Declan McGovern, said: "It's a potted highlight, and a perfect way to open the door into our world of classical music." The season will also include performances by the world-famous Ulster artistes, Sir James Galway and Barry Douglas, as well as the Australian classical guitarist Craig Ogden and the Russian pianist Nickolai Demindenko.

The Orchestra will also mark the Titanic's anniversary with a special commission by its associate composer Ian Wilson.

The season will include 35 main concerts and feature more than 60 composers.
