Following the success of their 70th anniversary celebrations last year, the National Youth Orchestra of Wales return to St David’s Hall on Saturday 5 August.
The world’s oldest national youth orchestra will once again be joined by the internationally renowned Carlo Rizzi, who conducts a wonderful programme of music that showcases the incredible talent of the NYOW members.
Featured in this captivating concert at 7.30pm is two masterful pieces from Strauss, Britten’s beautiful Four Seas Interludes from the opera Peter Grimes and Debussy’s dramatic La Mer.
