How silver-sweet sound lovers’ tongues by night
Like softest music to attending ears!

Love shines through in this Valentine’s Day programme by the talented young players of Chetham’s Symphony Orchestra – love of music, love of country, and of course, the romantic love at the heart of Tchaikovsky’s Shakespeare-inspired Fantasy Overture.

First, and fittingly, comes Romeo and Juliet; a musical interpretation of three key themes from the famous tale – faith, war, and love. The programme continues with a tour de force concerto for marimba, performed by 16 year old Fang Zhang, showcasing the unique connection between soloist and orchestra. Finally, we hear Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra, a celebration of every instrument onstage and, at the same time, a reminiscence for the exiled composer’s lost homeland – a stunning showpiece for any orchestra.
