MOZART Oboe Concerto in C major K314
RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Capriccio Espagnol Op 34
BERNSTEIN Symphonic Dances from West Side Story

The North Devon Sinfonia won BBC Four’s Great Orchestral Challenge in 2016. The Orchestra competed with amateur orchestras from all over the UK and were recognised for their ability, enthusiasm as well as revealing the amount of musical talent that exists in one of the remotest areas of England. Since then, the orchestra has travelled to Korea where they received considerable critical acclaim.
Oboist Polly Bartlett, joint winner of the Festival’s Young Musicians Competition in 2016, joins them. Polly is a Scholar at the Royal College of Music and was also a Finalist in BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2015. It goes without saying that there couldn’t be a better way of ending the Festival than with some music from Bernstein’s iconic and ground-breaking musical, West Side Story.

Tickets £15, £10, £5 (STUDENT OR CHILD)
