Beethoven’s Ninth is the work chosen to present to the world the newly formed Hastings Philharmonic – a permanent bonding of the well-known Hastings Philharmonic Choir with the Hastings Philharmonic Orchestra, which has its base in the Ensemble OrQuesta. A third component, Hastings Philharmonic Chamber Choir, will enable this local musical powerhouse to further expand its repertoire and ambitions. David Pullen looks forward to the first performance.

A clear winner

The Epic is finally over and it was very far from a foregone conclusion as to who might win. Few, I think , would have seen Tzu-Yin Huang from Taiwan as the likely winner at the end of the first round, or even after the semi finals,and yet she was chosen by the RPO orchestra as their winner as well as the jury  –  and from my soundings, by many of the audience as well (if they had been here both nights). HOT’s David Pullen sums up the Finals.

Hastings Toccata a joyous addition

In a way this is the end of the competition for me as a blogger, except to urge you all to get onto White Rock 462288 and book yourselves in for the finals on Friday and Saturday – there will be some blistering piano playing and a lot of boisterous orchestral playing to enjoy from the RPO, writes David Pullen.
