Ampthill Concert Orchestra
Ampthill Concert Orchestra met for its first rehearsal in November 2004 at Parkside Hall, with its first concert being staged with the support of the Ampthill and District Rotary Club at England Hall, Silsoe College in May 2005. In the years since, it has performed concerts in Ampthill, Silsoe, Leighton Buzzard and Sherrington with repertoire ranging from Les Miserables and The Dam Busters to Beethoven’s Egmont Overture and Elgar Cello Concerto. The latter was performed with soloist Tim Gill who was then Principal Cellist of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra!
