‘From the first, the standard of performance was admirably high and very professional’

On Saturday 25th January the GSO performed its annual Young Artists’ Concert, featuring five young soloists each playing one piece or movement from a major orchestral work. The concert featured music by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Bizet, Rodrigo and Shostakovich. The variety of music was equally matched by the diversity of our soloists – two pianists, one violinist, a harpist and a saxophonist. Every year our audiences are dazzled by the artistry of the young musicians we showcase and our 2020 event was just as exciting.

Help Musicians – an appeal

This is an incredibly difficult time for professional musicians. Many work on a freelance basis and are now suffering financial hardship due to the widespread cancellation of concerts. Help Musicians is the UK’s leading musical charity and has just launched a £5m  fund to help artists suffering as a result of the Coronavirus. The GSO want to support this initiative.
