We are sorry to announce that Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla has had to withdraw from this week’s concerts on 6 and 8 April as she is unwell. We are grateful to Andrew Gourlay for stepping in at such short notice. Ticket holders have been contacted separately.

Please note that the CBSO+ pre and post-concert talks have been cancelled for these concerts.
