BBC Orchestra comes to the Worcester Arena

Dear Colleagues,

The BBC National Orchestra of Wales will return to Worcester next month, for its second performance at the University of Worcester Arena.

Presented by the University, in association with the Autumn in Malvern Festival, this rare opportunity to see and hear one of the UK’s leading orchestras takes place on Sunday, October 1 at 3pm.

Conducted by Kazuke Yamada, the Orchestra will be playing Benjamin Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, along with Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No.1 in G minor Op.26, and Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No 9 in E minor Op.95 (From the New World).

Yamada is Artistic Director of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte Carlo, and has recently toured Japan with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, to great acclaim.

The exciting young musician Hyeyoon Park will lead on violin. Her exceptional talent has been recognised by the numerous national and international prizes she has been awarded. Among them, the prestigious London Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award in 2011and the ARD International Music Competition in Munich in 2009. Hyeyoon appears regularly as a recitalist with the pianist Benjamin Grosvenor and as a chamber musician at international festivals in Europe and America.

The concert will be recorded for future transmission on BBC Radio 3.

Tickets are £38 for family (2 adults and 2 children), £19 for adults, £5 children, £9 concessions

Best wishes,

Anne Hannaford
Director of Arts and Culture
