Top soloist in NPO concert

Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra is presenting an exciting evening of music at Nottingham’s Albert Hall on Saturday, March 28.

At the concert, you will hear two well-loved classics and an unusual rarity, all conducted by Mark Heron.

The rarity is a huge work for wind and brass by Khachaturian from his film score The Battle of Stalingrad. For this exciting piece, NPO is joined by the young players of Derbyshire City and County Youth Wind Band.
