In their first concert of the 22/23 season, Cambridge University Orchestra join forces with the Cambridge University Chamber Choir to present an exciting programme of Vaughan Williams, Price and Mendelssohn, under the direction of acclaimed conductor and Cambridge alumnus Ben Glassberg and chorus master David Lowe. Honouring Cambridge alumnus Vaughan Williams in the year of his 150th birthday, the choir and orchestra perform his Serenade to Music, which features poetic lyrics depicting music and its allure, adapted from the words of Shakespeare. The orchestra are then joined by celebrated young pianist Jeneba Kanneh-Mason, presenting Florence Price’s captivating Piano Concerto. The concert finishes with Mendelssohn’s first symphony, a dramatic, energetic work written when the composer was just 15 years of age. This symphony had a formative impact on a young Ben Glassberg, who played it as a student in Cambridge University Chamber Orchestra with Sir Roger Norrington.
