This evening showcases s the talent of the winner of the 2019 Yamaha Music Foundation of Europe scholarship. This year’s competition, held in February, is for trumpet players, and the chosen winner will perform the Neruda Concerto. MKCO greatly values its partnership with Milton Keynes-based Yamaha which enables us to bring such rising stars to The Venue.
The concert also showcases the combined talents of the orchestra’s string sections and what better way to do so than with three much-loved works by three much-admired composers – Mozart, Elgar and Tchaikovsky.
