Oban Symphony to make its debut performance

Oban is getting its very own symphony on March 20 when the first performance of local composer Norman Nicholson’s recently completed Oban Symphony takes place in the Corran Halls. It was commissioned 10 years ago as a work associated with this area, and written for Oban Bach Orchestra, who will give the first performance. Like other amateur orchestras, they have played several classical symphonies over the years, such as Beet hoven’s 5th and Schubert’s Unfinished, but have not attempted any more recent symphonies, since these tend to be too demanding and require too large an orchestra. The Oban Symphony fills a gap and will be played by an orchestra of 40. It is written in a fairly traditional style, easily understood at first hearing, yet containing the detailed musical development associated with a symphony.
