Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Benevolent Fund Concert

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Benevolent Fund Concert

Sunday, May 26, 2013 - 15:00

Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Bournemouth Symphony Chorus, under the baton of dynamic Welsh conductor Owain Arwel Hughes CBE, open the annual BSO Benevolent Fund Concert with Brahms’s lyrical Academic Festival Overture.

Jennifer Pike, former winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition and one of the most gifted of the younger generation of British artists, features as soloist in Sibelius’s exhilarating Violin Concerto.

A double helping of Tchaikovsky; the concert suite from his romantic ballet score Swan Lake, followed by the majestic 1812 Overture, brings the afternoon to a rousing conclusion.

All artists participating in this event are donating their services in aid of the BSO Benevolent Fund, which was founded in 1958 to help musicians in times of need.
