The Cambridge Classical Concert Series gets underway on 24 November when resident orchestra the Royal Philharmonic performs music by Tchaikovsky.
Christoph Koenig conducts cello soloist Laura van der Heijden, playing Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations, the lilting themes of the Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture and the impassioned Symphony No. 5.
Laura van der Heijden (pictured) won the 2012 BBC Young Musician competition at 15 and is now on tour with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra before starting her music degree next year at St John’s College, Cambridge. Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations is one of her favourite pieces of music.
A pre-concert talk, free to concert ticket holders, takes place at 6pm at the nearby Cambridge City Hotel and the concert itself starts at 7.30pm. Tickets from £28.50 (£12.50 concessions).
