This concert is a celebration of musical education, youth and mesmerising talent .
Finlandia and The Enigma Variations are both feature pieces in the popular BBC Ten pieces concert series, aimed at encouraging young people to understadn and enjoy classical music. We are delighted that the MK Youth Orchestra will join our professional musicians on stage side by side to perform Finlandia, the opening piece.
The Sibelius Violin Concerto will be performed by the prodigiously talented Chloe Hanslip who made her BBC Proms debut in 2002, followed by a USA debut the following year and then continued performing across the world to great acclaim. We are delighted to welcome Chloe to Milton Keynes.
