Europe’s rich tradition of orchestral music has produced countless legendary composers, many inspired by the countries around them, so join the Orchestra for an astounding evening of music from around our continent. Mozart’s energetic Overture to The Marriage of Figaro gives a foretaste of the farcical fun of the opera it introduces and provides a sparkling curtain-raiser for this concert. Then follows Rossini’s explosive Overture to The Italian Girl in Algiers and Mendelssohn’s heart-swelling 'Italian' Symphony; a charming expression of how Italy made him feel.

A pre-show talk with conductor Chloe van Soeterstede will take place in the auditorium at 6.30pm for all ticket holders.
