COLERIDGE-TAYLOR Ballade in A Minor
RODNEY BENNETT Trumpet Concerto
DVORÁK Symphony No 9 in E Minor ‘From the New World’
Enjoy a New Year spectacular featuring some of the finest young musicians from across the South West. Coleridge- Taylor’s rich Ballade pairs perfectly with an exciting new work by English composer Ayanna Witter-Johnson. Two composers synonymous with America close the programme: Rodney Bennett’s Trumpet Concerto features a moving Elegy for Miles Davis at its heart, whilst Dvorák’s mighty New World Symphony has enthralled audiences across the world with its rich tapestry of American themes since its premiere in 1893.
Help us to provide access to high quality musical development opportunities for talented young orchestral players across our rural county and donate now to our West of England Youth Orchestra Travel Fund. We need to raise an extra £3,000 to provide essential bus services for WEYO players to get to and from orchestral courses at Wiltshire Music Centre in August and December 2021.
