Orchestra in May concert

SCARBOROUGH Orchestra will perform a concert this May with a guest appearance by a talented pianist.

The orchestra, whose new home is now Queen Street Methodist Central Hall in Scarborough, will be performing Shostakovich’s delightful 9th Symphony. Composed in 1945 as a celebration of the Russian victory over Nazi Germany.

The other work in the concert is Brahm’s Second Piano Concerto, performed by Yuki Negishi.

Yuki started playing the piano at the age of five and was accepted to The Juilliard College at the age of 10.

Since coming to the UK she has won no less than 10 coveted piano prizes.

A pre-concert talk given by Frank James will take place in the concert hall at 6.45pm which can be attended by those who have purchased a concert ticket.

Tickets for the concert are priced £8.50/£7.50 in advance and £9.50/£8.50 on the day.

Doors open at 6.45pm.

People are advised to arrive early to guarantee a good seat.

The orchestra has received good comments since moving to its new venue.
