About:
On March 24th, the NSO offers a feast of American Greats, in St Nicholas’ Chapel, a perfect opportunity for young people to experience the thrill of an orchestra (under-18s get in free). The Sunday afternoon concert kicks off with a blast of brass and Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man. Next is award-winning Viv McLean (“fingers of steel, muscles of velvet” Le Monde), who will perform George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F, bringing the Jazz Age to the audience. After the interval, a change of mood with Philip Glass’ hypnotic minimalism, and his short Company. And then a thrilling finale, with Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, Romeo and Juliet reworked for the gangs of New York. Listen for finger-clicks and shout-outs from the orchestra as the lovers head towards tragedy, under the baton of internationally-renowned conductor Philip Hesketh. 100 free tickets to under 18s (call the box office).
