Nottingham Youth Orchestra perform celebration of Russian music

Over 200 young musicians from West Bridgford and Nottinghamshire will be performing in a celebration of Russian music on Saturday 9th March at The Royal Concert Hall.

Talented Nottingham pianist Jeneba Kanneh-Mason, a category finalist in BBC Young Musician 2018, joins Nottingham Youth Orchestra to perform Tchaikovsky’s popular First Piano Concerto.

The youth orchestra’s young musicians come from over 50 local schools and colleges, attracted by exceptional opportunities at a time when instrumental provision is declining. Clarinettists Teah from Bingham and Maya from Wollaton Park have played in NYO since 2014. “Our concerts are always exciting: we get to showcase beautiful repertoire in amazing venues.”

The concert reflects NYO’s high standards: in addition to the Tchaikovsky, Senior orchestra will perform Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite; Intermediate and Training orchestras will play music from The Planets and Swan Lake. Before the concert, and in the interval, the Jazz Orchestra will perform near the buffet bar.

This youthful, exuberant Russian Gala concert starts at 7 pm.
