The City of Leeds Youth Orchestra’s performances in recent years are one of the great success stories of music making in the region. The orchestra now numbers nearly 100 young musicians and this programme will once again show off these wonderful young talents.
With music ranging from lively Courtly Dances to the intimacy of the Earl of Essex’s Lute Song, Britten’s Symphonic Suite from his opera Gloriana brings the world of Elizabethan England to light. Puccini’s most popular work is given the full symphonic treatment with all the great melodies from the opera in Fantasia on La bohème.
Holst’s ever popular Planets Suite is sure to provide the perfect vehicle to celebrate the region’s finest orchestral musicians of the City of Leeds Youth Orchestra.
