National Children's Orchestras

National Children's Orchestras
The National Children's Orchestras have a pair of concerts coming up which will showcase the organisation's main orchestras. The Main Orchestra is performing at Colston Hall, Bristol on Saturday 11 April 2015. Conducted by guest conductor Howard Williams, they will be joined by Bristol Choral Society and soprano Rhiannon Llewellyn for Poulenc's Gloria along with Elgar's Cockaigne and Ravel's Bolero. Whilst the Main Orchestra is the most senior group with children up to the age of 14, the Under 13 Orchestra has children under 13 and this group will be conducted by Roger Clarkson at The Anvil in Basingstoke on Sunday 12 April 2015, in a programme including Berlioz Roman Carnival Overture, Liszt's Les Preludes, the Berceuse and Finale from Stravinsky's Firebird as well as other colourful items. Both groups have to be seen and heard to be believed (see my review of the two orchestras join concert at the Royal Festival in 2013)
