THE BBC National Orchestra of Wales is to place the University of Worcester Arena with a programme that’s sure to delight music lovers.

Presented by the University, in association with the Autumn in Malvern Festival, this rare opportunity to see and hear one of the UK’s leading orchestras is on Sunday, October 1 at 3pm.

Anne Hannaford, director of arts and culture at the university, said: “We hope the timing of the concert makes it easier for families and people who are less able to get out in the evenings to come and enjoy an afternoon of very fine music, while regular concertgoers will be delighted to see well-loved pieces on the programme. ”

Conducted by Kazuki Yamada, the orchestra will be playing Benjamin Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, with Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No.1 in G minor Op.26, and Antonin Dvorak’s Symphony No 9 in E minor Op.95 (From the New World).

Exciting young musician Hyeyoon Park will lead on violin. Her exceptional talent has been recognised by the numerous national and international prizes she has been awarded.

The concert will be also recorded for future transmission on BBC Radio 3.
