THE GALWAY Youth Orchestra will give its debut performance of the Mandolin Concerto by Johann Hummel in the Black Box Theatre on Sunday May 10.
The soloist in this concerto will be Sebastien Petiet from the RTÉ Concert Orchestra. Mr Petiet has the distinction of being an established classical musician and a well known traditional fiddler. This performance will allow a Galway audience to see a very fine mandolin exponent perform a work which is rarely heard in Ireland.
Music by Tchaikovsky, Roman, and Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony, conducted by Michael Dooley, will be performed and there will be performances by all the GYO orchestral groups and the Alouette Wind band.
GYO will hold auditions for new members on May 23. For more information contact 091 - 521324 before May 18.
