“See in the New Year in style with OSJ’s traditional end of year Gala at Dorchester Abbey”

www.oxinabox.co.uk

For local classical music lovers there’s only one place to be on New Year’s Eve and that’s Dorchester Abbey, where the Orchestra of St John’s will be giving its traditional end-of-year bash.

There’s lots of Strauss on the menu, as might be expected, but a host of other dance-themed music as well, from Tchaikovsky, Gounod, Dvorak and Puccini to Shostakovich and Khachaturian.

Highlights include movements from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite, Dvorak’s Slavonic Dance Op.46 No.8, Shostakovich’s Waltz No.2 and Khachaturian’s Galop, as well as lots of lovely Strauss waltzes and polkas to really capture that New Year’s Eve mood.
