Bolton’s Youth Orchestra is teaming up with their counterparts in Paderborn and Le Mans to perform a concert in the Albert Hall under the guise of the International Youth Philharmonic.
Members of the orchestra are currently on tour to Bolton’s two twin towns, leaving these shores last Friday (26/6). Having met up with the local youth orchestras they are in the midst of a challenging series of rehearsals that will culminate in a series of gala concerts performed in prestigious venues in the three host towns.
The final concert will take place at the Albert Halls next Thursday (9/7) beginning at 7.30pm, and tickets are still available for what promises to be a spectacular musical event. With pieces by Mendelssohn and Bernstein, as well as John Williams’ much-loved Star Wars Suite, the entertainment will provide something for everyone.
Tickets can be bought from the Albert Halls Ticket and Information Centre, and are £6.50 for adults, £4 concessions, £18 for a family tickets (2 adults and 2 concessions), and anyone under 19 who comes unaccompanied will be offered a free ticket.
Councillor Ebrahim Adia, Executive Member for Children’s Services at Bolton Council, said: “It is great to see this talented group of young people get together with like minded musicians from our twin towns.
“Not only will this event provide some fabulous entertainment for the general public, but the tour also gives our young people some great experiences and memories that will stay with them forever.”
