Did you know we have some amazing cello stories in ERSO’s past?
Jacqueline du Pre gave her first performance of the Elgar Cello Concerto with ERSO (known then as the London Senior Orchestra) back in December 1959 at the age of 13.
And another famous first was Guy Johnston’s earliest solo experience, playing the Lalo Cello Concerto with ERSO at the Royal Festival Hall. Guy said: “I’ll never forget it – Thank you ERSO”
We’re proud to continue the tradition of offering solo opportunities to young musicians through our ERSO Soloist of the Year competition. Will this year’s fabulously talented winner Henry Hargreaves follow in the footsteps of these famous cellists?
Come and hear him perform the Schumann on Sunday 16th June at our final concert of the season.
