Britten Youth String Orchestra

26th July

The Britten Youth String Orchestra will play a lunchtime concert at The Bishop's Palace in Wells. The talented group will perform a varied programme of string works including Warlock's much-loved Capriol Suite, Rachmaninov's atmospheric Vocalise and Grieg's well-known Holberg Suite.

Britten Youth String Orchestra

The Orchestra was founded in 2007 by conductor Loes Visser who created the orchestra to provide a platform for young talented string instrument players wanting to develop their skill in an inspiring, high level, and musically demanding environment.
Loes Visser and the orchestra are closely related to the ArtEZ Conservatory in the Netherlands.

The orchestra has performed three times for the Dutch Royal family and is a regular guest in Dutch theaters and country estate concerts.

Every year the Britten Youth String orchestra goes on tour. The orchestra has been invited to play in Italy, France, Switzerland and Spain and in 2014 it won the 1st price at the music competition of the Summa Cum Laude Youth Music Festival in Vienna, Austria.

The concert will be held in the Conference Room and will be included in admission to the Palace & Gardens.
