A special festival dedicated to showcasing tomorrow's world class musicians today.
Young Virtuosi is dedicated to developing and inspiring young musicians needing special encouragement and support through the challenging transition to professional artist.
Through a series of concerts, recitals and master classes, the Young Virtuosi Festival is not just a breathtaking and dynamic event in the musical calendar, but a real stepping stone for its artists in their quest to achieve their aspirations and full potential.
Introducing The Young Virtuosi Festival
Orchestra Rheia, a new London-based group of highly talented musicians, will give its first public performance at St Giles Cripplegate on the 31st May 2019, 7.30pm. The program will consist of Brahms’ colossal Ein Deutsches Requiem, alongside J.S. Bach’s Double Violin Concerto.
We are lucky to have two hugely-talented young violinists with us to perform the Bach, Katya Tsukanova and Sara Dragan. In addition to this, Lauren Fagan, Australia’s representative for Cardiff Singer of the World 2019, and Theodore Platt, recent winner of the Lies Askonas Competition in 2018, will be joining us as the soloists for Brahms’ vocal masterpiece.
