The Guernsey Symphony Orchestra celebrates its 20th anniversary on 17th November, with their Twenty Years Young concert.

Richard Dickins Directs

The orchestra will be directed by guest conductor Richard Dickins and joined by guest soloist Laura van der Heijden, who won the 2012 BBC Young Musician of The Year competition playing the Walton cello concerto. Laura will be performing the same concerto during this 20th anniversary evening.

Guest conductor Richard Dickins is a regular visitor to Guernsey and has worked with many orchestras throughout his career, including the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, London Mozart Players and the Ulster Orchestra.

Featured Performers

The Twenty Years Young programme will feature performances of Welcome Ode Op. 95 by Benjamin Britten and Schubert’s C Major Symphony. The latter was the first piece that the symphony orchestra performed after being formed 20 years ago. The audience will also be treated to a performance by the Guernsey Schools Music Service Youth Choir.

Tickets for the concert are available from £10.00 per person, with £6.00 for restricted view seats and half price for students. Tickets are available from guernseytickets.gg.
