Join us for our spectacular Summer Concert this June in Penzance, featuring soloist Madeleine Pickering playing the Mendelssohn E Minor Violin Concerto.

This exciting and moving composition, one of Felix Mendelssohn’s most popular, perfectly demonstrates Madeleine's talent as a musician, and showcases the fabulous sound of the Cornwall Concert Orchestra.

Madeleine is a recent graduate of the Royal Academy of Music where she won many prizes and was leader of several of their orchestras. Now, she enjoys work with the London Symphony, Mozart Symphony and Fantasia Orchestras. She performed in Penzance last November and delighted the audience with her performance of the Dvorak violin concerto.

The Orchestra will also be performing Mozart’s famous Symphony no.40, one of his last symphonies, and one of the most intense and dark in character.
Other works will be Schubert’s lyrical Rosamunde Overture, and the well-known Carmen Suite by Bizet.
The Summer Concert will end with the exciting Spartacus Suite, written for the ballet of the same name, by Aram Khachaturian, an Armenian composer who was prolific in the first half of the 20th century. Many people will recognise part of this suite as the memorable theme music from the TV series ‘The Onedin Line’.

Cornwall Concert Orchestra have performed highly successful concerts with outstanding young soloists annually in Penzance for several years prior to the pandemic.

This promises to be highly enjoyable concert, and a fantastic welcome back to performing in Penzance for the Orchestra.
