Isle of Wight Symphony Orchestra Advert

It’s the last Symphony Orchestra concert of the current season next Saturday (12th July), – and it’s going to be a good one.

I don’t think the rest of the orchestra realise just how much space the percussion section is going to take up, – here’s just the largest of the instruments we’ll be playing:

  • Pedal Timpani (not sure if there’ll be 3 or 4, but they’re pretty large anyway)
  • Xylophone
  • Vibraphone
  • Marimba
  • Bass Drum
  • Tubular Bells
  • Drum Kit

In addition to those, there’ll be a wide assortment of other drums (Congas, Bongos etc.), Cymbals and miscellaneous auxiliary instruments (including a bird whistle!).
