Chetham's Symphony Orchestra

Thursday 23 and Friday 24 October 2014 bring the chance to hear the wonderful Chetham's Symphony Orchestra in action. Conducted by Paul Mann the orchestra is performing Bernstein, Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky at the Royal Northern College of Music (23/10) and the Guildhall School's new Milton Court Concert Hall (24/10) 

They will perform Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 'Pathétique' , Prokofiev's Second Violin Concerto and the Symphonic Suite from Leonard Bernstein’s score to the 1954 film On the Waterfront. The violin soloist is Elizaveta Saul, a Chetham’s student from Belarus who was the winner of Chetham’s 2013 Concerto Competition.

Chetham’s Symphony Orchestra is formed of students from Manchester's Chetham's School of Music, aged 14-18. Judging by previous performances of theirs that I have heard, we can expect a performance close to that of the professional ensembles.

Further information and tickets from the Barbican website.
