Brighton Youth Orchestra

with Laura van der Heijden

Soloist Laura van der Heijden
Conductor Andrew Sherwood

Cellist Laura van der Heijden, winner of the 2012 BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition, joins Brighton Youth Orchestra to play the rarely performed Concerto Elegiaco by Frank Bridge, one of Brighton’s most notable composers.

This concert marks the orchestra’s 70th anniversary as both one of Europe’s oldest youth orchestras and Brighton & Hove Music & Arts’ flagship ensemble. The best of young local talent will play a programme celebrating youth, featuring Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasia and Bernstein’s West Side Story. Members of Brighton Youth Orchestra will also be joined by younger players from our training orchestras, Brighton & Hove Youth Philharmonia and Junior Youth Orchestra, for part of the performance.
