Aylesbury Orchestra concert supports young talent

A concert from Aylesbury's Orchestra is supporting local talent tonight. 

The Aylesbury Orchestra are offering free tickets to young cello student accompanying a paying adult this evening. 

They are hoping to encourage the younger generation to embrace their love of classical music.

The group are proud to promote younger performers, giving young soloists support and help through their path in music.

Tonights cellist soloist, Dan Brandon, is ex principal cellist of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and shockingly young at 18 years old.

Sue Hursy from the group says:

"Music is a part of everyday life and listening and watching live classical music helps you to completely switch off from the outside world  for an hour or two and helps with mental health wellbeing.

"We want classical music to be accessible to young people because it's part of our history and culture. The music we are playing dates from the late 1890's - and still as popular 130 years or so later.  

"It's timeless and important to keep the music alive from generation to generation."
