Norfolk Symphony Orchestra will bring the colours and sounds of French impressionist music to St Nicholas Chapel in King’s Lynn on Sunday March 25.

The orchestra’s leader Phillipa Barton is the soloist at the concert and works by Debussy, Ravel and Chausson will be performed in a programme conducted by musical director Phillips Hesketh.

Philippa began playing the violin at the age of six. She studied at the Royal College of Music with Trevor Williams and Dona Lee Croft, during which time she led both the RCM Chamber Orchestra and the Young Musicians’ Symphony Orchestra.

Philippa was a member of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra for 3 years before she decided to return to London to freelance with orchestras such as the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the London Mozart Players and the City of London Sinfonia.

Her solo performances have included Tchaikovsky, Bruch, Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Vivaldi concerti, Vaughan Williams’ Lark Ascending, and Brahms’ Concerto for Violin and Cello.

Tickets are £16 and the concert starts at 3.30pm.
