Destination Russia and beyond

Destination Russia - National Children's Orchestra, Jonathan BLoxham
Under the title Destination Russia the National Children's Orchestra, conductor Jonathan Bloxham, is giving a programme of music by Shostakovich,Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev at the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester on Saturday 4 August 2018. The programme includes Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 2 with Benjamin Baker as soloist.

The young conductor Jonathan Bloxham has just finished his second year as Assistant Conductor position under Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Conducting the National Children's Orchestra will be something of a return for Jonathan as he was the principal cello of the orchestra during his school days.

It is going to be a busy summer for Jonathan Bloxham, he makes his debut with the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen on 17 & 18 August 2018, invited by his mentor Paavo Järvi (who is musical director of the orchestra).
