A celebration of cooperation between musicians at different stages of their careers and the value of music education

Mahler 9 - Seraphin Chamber Orchestra
The Seraphin Chamber Orchestra, founded by cellist and composer Joy Lisney, is made up of talented young musicians studying in Cambridge. On Sunday 3 March 2019 the orchestra is embarking on a hugely ambitious project, a performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 9 at West Road Concert Hall 

The orchestra will be joined by the best Cambridge University players, select graduate students from leading conservatoires, talented young musicians from the Cambridge area (National Youth Orchestra principals and BBC Young Musician finalists) and guest players from professional orchestras including Paul Barritt (guest Leader of the Hallé), Michael Wright (ex-principal clarinet of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra), Michael Buchanan (trombone, winner of the ARD Munich Competition and previously principal of the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester and Scottish National Opera), and Colin Alexander (cellist, BBC Symphony Orchestra).

Prior to the evening performance, the guest players will rehearse with the orchestra, offering mentoring and coaching to the young players. This is a wonderful opportunity for aspiring young musicians to learn from and perform alongside leading professionals and represents an important musical and educational collaboration.

This concert is a celebration of cooperation between musicians at different stages of their careers and the value of music education.

All proceeds from the concert will go to the Voices Foundation. Further information and tickets from ADC Ticketing.
