SUNDAY 4th JUNE, 2.30pm
The Smith Auditorium, Shore School

Benett Tsai,  Soloist
Steven Hillinger,  Conductor
Shuti Huang,  Concertmaster
Verdi   Overture to ‘Nabucco’
Elgar  Cello Concerto
Beethoven  Symphony No. 5
For the second concert of our anniversary season, we continue our long-standing partnership with The Fine Music 102.5 Young Virtuoso Award Competition. The 2016 winner was the extraordinary young cellist Benett Tsai – at just twelve years old a true musical prodigy. He will perform Elgar’s much-loved cello concerto.

We open the concert with another of Verdi’s great overtures, from Nabucco.

And finally, if there is one piece of music that needs no introduction it is Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.  From that iconic four-note opening to the brilliant finale, it is rightly considered by many to be the finest piece of music ever written.
