Talented young cellist Rebecca McNaught will join Gloucestershire Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Haydn’s well-known Cello Concerto in C in June. Rebecca won the Gloucestershire Young Musician title in 2015. Since then, she has completed her undergraduate degree in music at Oxford, where she twice achieved the highest solo performance mark in her year. She now studies at the Royal Academy of Music, and is principal cellist in the Royal Academy Symphony Orchestra. She recently toured Japan with the Royal Academy Soloists.
As well as the Haydn concerto, the concert includes Mendelssohn’s well-loved Italian Symphony, and Mozart’s effervescent overture to his opera Marriage of Figaro.
The concert is at St Catharine’s Church, London Road, Gloucester on Saturday 22 June at 7.30 pm. Full concert and ticket details are here.
