From Leeds Town Hall

Presented by Adam Tomlinson

National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain
Ladies of the Leeds Festival Chorus
John Wilson - Conductor
John Adams: Guide to Strange Places
Britten: Four Sea Interludes from "Peter Grimes"

The 165-strong National Youth Orchestra will perform a thrilling, colourful concert that shows off their exceptional talent and love of music under the baton of the inspirational conductor John Wilson.
We'll be transported far outside Leeds Town Hall with this programme: up into space for a musical exploration of the giants of our solar system in Holst's The Planets; deep among the brooding ocean waves off the Suffolk coast in Britten's Four Sea Interludes; and right into your own imagination via John Adam's Guide to Strange Places.
