The Purcell School for Young Musicians returns to the London stage for a long-awaited concert at Cadogan Hall.

This concert is given by several chamber orchestras featuring the School’s most senior students, many of whom are leaving afterwards to attend some of the world’s finest conservatoires.

This will be a ‘socially distanced’ celebration of all the young musicians and teachers who have kept working throughout a year of lockdowns to produce exceptional work – virtuosic playing, intriguing new compositions, and appealing music-making from the musicians of the future.

Duration: approx. 1 hour 10 minutes (no interval)

Ticket Information

£25, £20, £15

Senior Citizens (65+) & Students: £5 off

All orders are subject to a transaction fee, except if made in person. See booking information for details, payment methods and delivery options.
