Wagner    Overture: Die Meistersinger

Grieg            Piano concerto in A minor

Elgar                           Symphony No 2


Michael Lloyd  conductor

Adelaide Yue  piano


Please note the earlier 7.30pm start time.

Adelaide Yue was an instant hit with the judges and the audience at the 2015 Chandos Young Musician Competition and cruised to the winning spot with serene assurance. Expect a sparkling pianistic performance right from the very opening bars of this magnifient concerto, set alight by the thunderous roll of the timpani.  


Chandos continues its journey through the symphonies of Elgar with his second.  At its heart, a melancholy core of tragic lyricism, yet flanked by movements of unquenchable energy.  We open with Die Meistersinger: it’s midsummer’s eve, Nuremberg, 16th century. Can Walter learn the mastersinger’s art in time to win the fair lady’s hand?

Chandos Symphony Orchestra is pleased to be taking part in a national project to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1916 silent film 'the Battle of the Somme' with a new orchestral score, commissioned by the Imperial War Museum, and conducted by our music director, Michael Lloyd. Laura Rossi’s score provides a powerful and poignant live accompaniment to this moving original documentary.


Chandos will be amongst the 100 orchestras chosen to give a live performance + screening around the UK. Twenty million people went to see this film in 1916, and thus had great significant social impact. Join us and VIP guests for this unique opportunity to see the historic 74 minute film and to hear the new score.  Proceeds will be shared with the Pershore Branch of the Royal British Legion.



Tickets £14 • Child half price

Tickets will be on sale from 14th May 2016
