Stéphane Denève to stand in for Marin Alsop

Marin Alsop has unfortunately had to cancel her participation in the DSO concert on 5 December 2021 due to the current pandemic situation. We are very pleased that Stéphane Denève has agreed to take over the conducting. Instead of Samuel Barber's First Symphony, the Second Orchestral Suite from the ballet 'Bacchus et Ariane' by Albert Roussel will be heard. The rest of the programme remains unchanged.
