The French Connection

About The French Connection

Paisley Sinfonia (formerly St James Orchestra), under the baton of Leon Reimer, will perform a stirring programme of French music. Featuring Hector Berlioz’s rarely performed overture ‘Intrata di Rob-Roy McGregor’ and Georges Bizet’s popular ‘L’Arlésienne Suite No 1′, the orchestra will finish with the great ”Organ’ Symphony No 3 in C minor, Op 78′ by Camille Saint-Saëns with the Abbey’s own Prof George McPhee on the organ.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The French Connection are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
