Wells Cathedral School Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to be working with rising star Ben Glassberg, winner of all the prizes in the 2017 Besancon International Young Conductors’ Competition. A triple bill of glorious romantic orchestral masterpieces to banish the chill of a February evening with passion, drama and stunning virtuosity. The thunderously triumphant opening chords of Tchaikovsky’s concerto must be among the most famous in all classical music. There will be a retiring collection for the refugee charity Safe Passage.
