Young musicians prepare for concert alongside the professionalsMar 05, 2017
The concert at Milton Keynes Theatre will open with the MK Youth Orchestra, on stage, side by side with MKCO’s professional musicians, performing Sibelius’ Karelia Suite.
The students have been rehearsing for six months with the help of the professional musicians and MKCO music director Damian Iorio.
The concert programme also includes Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, featuring pianist and Classic FM star Ji Liu, and Dvorak’s Symphony No.9 (From the New World).
Orchestra chairman Marian Livingstone said; “Our full Symphony Orchestra, performing powerful classical music, is something for everyone to enjoy at every level of music appreciation.
"I am very excited to welcome Ji Liu and it is marvellous for the Youth Orchestra players to have this enriching experience.”
