We are pleased to bring her back to perform the beautiful Korngold Violin Concerto, a lush, lyrical piece, perfectly suited to her style. We’re coupling it with Dvořák’s fresh and melodious Symphony No. 8.

CHILDREN in Gloucestershire who act as carers for their disabled or ill parents will receive the musical opportunity of a lifetime this February. Charity Gloucestershire Young Carers is teaming up with Bath Philharmonia Orchestra’s Music in Action education and outreach team to bring ‘We Care, We Sing’, an event offering five days of music workshops for 60 young carers in the county.

The children, whose lives are affected by being carers  for their parents or siblings, will work with professional musicians, learning how to sing, play instruments and write their own songs. These workshops will go out on a high as the children, some as young as eight, are to star in a concert with a 500 strong audience at Gloucester Cathedral.

All profits will go towards the Gloucestershire Young Carers charity.
