Saturday 8th Dec – Brighton Youth Orchestra String Ensemble BYOSE

BYO: Clive Flint

BYOSE Brighton Youth Orchestra String Ensemble will accompany the outstanding young 14 year old pianist Berniya Hamie who will play the slow Movement of  Chopin Piano Concerto no 2, and Chopin Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise.  Berniya is a pianist who is gathering awards and acclaim nationally.

The String Ensemble who accompany her are themselves a national award winning ensemble who have over the years played in many of the main concert halls in Britain including the Albert Hall, Southbank and Birmingham as well as in venues as varied as a cinema in Catelonia, the Japanese embassy and care homes. They have had music specially written for them by Howard Goodall and often play by memory and  have given an hour long live performance on Classic FM – the only youth ensemble to have done this

Other works in the concert range from Baroque to the 20th century and from England to Greece .

This will be a special concert, the proceeds of which will go to the charity Encore B&H, which helps young people, who could not otherwise afford it,  to get into music or help them progress
