City of Carlisle Orchestra: Winter Concert

City of Carlisle Orchestra: Winter Concert


The opening concert of the 2016/17 season for the City of Carlisle Orchestra.

The programme opens with the sparkling Rusman and Ludmilla Overture by Mikhail Glinka, while the major work for the evening will be Jean Sibelius’ majestic Symphony Number 2.

However, between these two items the audience will be given the opportunity to witness a stunningly talented, local young musician, whose future in the music world is assured.

The concert features Leah Nicholson performing Tchaikovsky’s 1st Piano Concerto. Leah, from Lanercost, is in her fifth year at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester and, at just fifteen years of age, holds a Licentiate of the Royal Schools of Music Diploma with Distinction in Piano Solo Performance. She is a winner of numerous competitions including the International Chopin Festival in Mazovia, Poland, and Chetham’s Concerto Competition playing Rachmaninov’s 2nd Piano Concerto.

Leah is studying with John Gough and has participated in masterclasses with Martin Roscoe, Murray McLachlan, Anthony Hewitt, Kathryn Stott and Galina Sandovskaya.

The concert will be conducted by Leon Reimer, graduate of the Scottish Conservatoire and a young professional currently enjoying his second season with the orchestra.

Programme as follows:
Glinka - Russlan and Ludmilla Overture
Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto No.1 (Soloist Leah Nicholson)
Sibelius - Symphony No.2
