A while ago a newspaper asked for suggestions for concert titles similar to 'Mostly Mozart' that would feature other classical composers.

My favorite entry was 'Often Offenbach'.

What suggestions do other shippies have?

Very good!
I gather they had problems with a trilogy of concerts by a celebrated American minimalist- the First and Second Reich Concerts were OK, but then they decided that that was probably enough....

So they put on a concert by another C20 US composer instead, on a Friday night:

I do remember it ... and in this part of the world we're getting Britten almost rammed down our throats just now.

What about "In London Town"?

"Cockaigne" overture by Elgar, "Knightsbridge" by Eric Coates and the "Hammersmith Suite" by Holst. Then, after the interval, Vaughan Williams' "London Symphony".

I'm sure we could fit in the Strand somewhere too!

Bet it's been done - at the Proms, for instance. But perhaps we're getting a bit too serious and detailed!

A Little Swimming Lesson - Strauss's "Blue Danube", Debussy's "La Mer", Smetana's "Vltava", extracts from Bizet's "Pearl Fishers" - not to mention "By the Sleepy Lagoon" (?Coates) as an encore.

Well, it's not much, but for starters,

A Course of Rimsky-Korsakov

Maybe a dinner concert?

A friend went to see a jazz band a while back, who played a game rather similar to this with the audience over the interval. Extra constraints were to stay in the jazz genre, and maximise local connections (to Manchester).

We continued long after the event - amongst the best were 'an evening with Stan Denton, Art Blakely and Swinton Marsallis'. [Big Grin]

The choral society I sing in (well, 'sing' is a generous description, but they haven't thrown me out yet) has in recent years actually done a 'Mainly Mozart', followed in quick succession by a 'Fundamentally French' (Faure, Poulenc) and a 'Basically Brahms' ('German Requiem' and some anthems). Oh, and a 'Principally Purcell' (Dido and Aeneas). We await next year with interest ...

Sorry, double post - one of the churches in our circuit has a sign on the organ that says 'I'm a musician - I can Handel it!'

My granddaughter is being taken to the Tiddly Proms, which I think is a wonderful name for introducing young children to classical music!

In Cheltenham a similar idea is being launched, under the title of Lilliput Concerts.

Perhaps they will have some Mini Mozart, Hand-high Handel, Teeny Tippett, Baby Beethoven, etc?
