Few composers have ever written a piece for young people (aged 5 to 105) that’s as fabulous, as fun and as thrillingly colourful as Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra. Great music belongs to all ages, whether it’s a playful Vaughan Williams ballet or Delius’ gorgeous musical daydreams. So today we’re also proud to present the latest in our hugely successful series of commissions for our terrific Youth Choirs and Orchestra, composed by Joanna Marsh and conducted by Ellie Slorach.

BSL interpretation available at this performance. Call to book suitable seats.
