UC CYO Presents: “Confessions”

Concert Two - "Confessions" 

Christchurch School of Music is excited to present this concert where the UC Christchurch Youth orchestra performs a full concert of wonderful classical works. The highlight of the concert will be the much loved Sibelius Symphony No. 2 which Sibelius started in winter 1901 in Rapallo, Italy, shortly after the successful premiere of the popular Finlandia, and finished in 1902 in Finland. Sibelius said, "My second symphony is a confession of the soul."

Other pieces to feature in this concert are the Overture to Nabucco by Verdi, the UC CYO Concert Band performing the Second Suite in F for Military Band and the String Orchestra with the beautiful Sospiri by Elgar.

Don't miss this opportunity to hear Christchurch's top talented orchestral youth in this superb concert on Friday 11 August.
