Starry nights, exotic voyages and all the colours of the symphony orchestra.

It’s all about colour: and from the subtle impressionist tints of Debussy to Stravinsky’s gleaming, streamlined symphony from wartime LA, guest conductor Jérémie Rhorer knows just how to make this music glow. The CBSO Youth Chorus adds its own magic, and we’re thrilled to welcome British soprano Elizabeth Llewellyn in Ravel’s luscious Shéhérazade. “A voice of pure operatic joy” say the critics – but come and hear for yourself
