Now in its third year as Orchestra-in-Residence at Queen’s College, Southern Sinfonia’s Spring Concert there on March 8th is a real crowd-pleaser with a programme which is both traditional and popular.
World renowned conductor, Simon Chalk takes the lead and you can listen again to his interview on the Tone FM website.
Soloist Graham Caskie will play Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Piano Concerto – described by Classic FM as ‘arguably the greatest work for piano and orchestra ever written’.
This will be the second appearance with the orchestra of the school’s recently-refurbished Steinway piano.
The evening opens with Rossini’s lively William Tell Overture – made famous thanks to ‘The Lone Ranger’ – and ends with Mendlessohn’s wonderful ‘Italian’ Symphony.

Tone News understands that Queen’s College is believed to be the only school in the country with its own professional Orchestra-in-Residence. You can find out more at its Open Morning (11-18 years) on March 9th
