Conducted by their musical director, Allan Smith, Louth Choral Society presents a delightful programme of 19th century Austrian classics by the family Strauss, and in particular works by Johann Strauss II, The Waltz King. Performed at St James’s Church, Louth on Sunday 1st July, commencing at 7.30pm.
Featuring songs from operettas such as Tales from the Vienna Woods and Die Fledermaus, the concert will also include well-known favourites including the Emperor Waltz and By the Beautiful Blue Danube. Many of the tunes are well known by orchestral concert goers and, of course, ball-room dancers, but this will be an opportunity to discover the accompanying songs so rarely performed today. And it won’t only be waltzes that might tempt audiences to take to the floor, but polkas and the famous Radetzky March too.
Tickets for what promises to be a Summer Concert of Surprises are available from Eve & Ranshaw in the town’s Cornmarket, or on-line from www.ticketsource.co.uk/louthchoral. Tickets £10, under 18s free and 6 for 5 offer available.
