The Altrincham Concert Orchestra Hall of Fame

The King and I

Richard Rogers

A lovely selection from this iconic musical that seems to suit the orchestra very well.

The Late Twenties

Arr. Sharpe

Another delightful selection of period music assembled and arranged by Trevor L  Sharpe, a prolific composer and arranger and one-time Director of Music of the Coldstream Guards.

English Folk Song Suite Vaughan Williams

Quintessentially English musical setting of folk songs collected by this master tunesmith.

Pirates of the Caribbean Selections

Zimmer & Budelt

Music from two of the blockbuster series: At World’s End and Curse of the Black Pearl.

The Cossack

William Rimmer

A foot-tapping, traditional march by this prolific Salvation Army composer.

Petite Suite de Concert

Coleridge-Taylor

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor was a late 19th Century Afro-English composer whose “Hiawatha’s Wedding Feast” was once as popular as the Messiah and Elijah.

Amparita Roca

Jaime Teixidor

An energetic Spanish march whose English title, perhaps surprisingly, is given as “Sheltered Cliff” but sounds more like a full-blown gale!

Mack and Mable Overture

Jerry Herma

Think 1911 Keystone Cops! This is a rollicking romp of a piece which actually dates from a  not entirely popular 1974 musical whose songs have had more enduring success this side of the pond.

Altrincham Concert Orchestra is fortunate to have a large library of popular light and classical music and Monday nights are an enjoyable journey through this wonderful resource.

The titles on this page are a very small sample of the music that we particularly enjoy playing.
