Chetham's Symphony Orchestra has an outstanding international reputation as one of the finest young orchestras in the world. The CSO has a busy concert diary in the UK and has been a regular guest orchestra at Lancaster for many years. They bring their most talented young musicians to open our season.
We feature one of Chetham’s star pupils, Eleanor Kornas, in a concerto by the great Russian composer, Scriabin. The concerto is flanked by two of Berlioz’s most cherished works. The energetic and lyrical “Roman Carnival” overture opens the concert, ending with the Berlioz’s epic Symphonie
Fantastique - one of the most important works of the 19th century era. Enduringly popular, this is Romantic music at it’s finest.
Chetham's Symphony Orchestra performed with a richness many professional orchestras might envy
