Join Reading Symphony Orchestra for our first concert of the 2017-18 season! We are delighted to welcome talented pianist Rhys Concessao, winner of the 2017 Reading Symphony Orchestra/Hickies Young Musicians’ Competition, who will be performing Chopin’s Piano Concerto No 1. Rhys, a pupil at the Purcell School and Royal Academy, has already performed with piano superstar Lang Lang and at Carnegie Hall in New York, and was the 2017 winner of the Times Network Global Award for Outstanding Young Pianist.

The concert will begin with Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture. Based on his opera Benvenuto Cellini, the overture evokes all the sounds and excitement of Mardi Gras festivities in Rome in 1532. The second half of the concert will feature Dvorák's Symphony No 7. Premiered in London in 1885, the symphony shows Dvorák at his very best. A concert not to be missed!
