The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain is one of the wonders of the musical world, and once you’ve experienced 164 world-class teenage musicians raising the roof you’ll understand why! With Nicola Benedetti joining them in Tchaikovsky’s violin concerto, and powerhouse maestro Mark Wigglesworth unleashing the raw passion of Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet, this should be remarkable.
