Venue: King George's Hall, Blackburn
‘Probably Britain’s most adventurous orchestra& (The Times), Manchester Camerata returns to Barrow Forum Theatre for an evening of popular classics, featuring two of today&s most eminent female artists, Norwegian trumpet sensation, Tine Thing Helseth, and Australian born conductor, Jessica Cottis.
Known for her communicative powers with audiences, Tine joins the orchestra for concertos by Hummel and Haydn, both renowned for their virtuosic writing and infectious melodies.
Completing the programme, Mendelssohn takes us on an evocative tour of Scotland, inspired by the composer&s time in the Highlands – a musical journey encompassing misty peaks, bagpipes and highland dancing.
