Join the Pro Youth Philharmonia for its inaugural concert and witness the birth of a new musical force. Conceived as an advanced training orchestra providing high profile platforms for emerging musicians aged 22-32, PYP is the brainchild of its artistic director and principal conductor, Wissam Boustany.
PYP will be performing MacMillan’s dark memorial to Isobel Gowdie, who was persecuted and burnt as a witch during the post-reformation period in Scotland, and will be joined by soloist Stephanie Gonley in Prokofiev’s hypnotic Violin Concerto No. 2. The concert ends with Bartók’s thrilling orchestral showpiece, the Concerto for Orchestra.
