Young Virtuosos  2019

This is our 3rd concert of the Young Virtuosos series. 
Orchestra members will have the opportunity to choose their favourite pieces, and those pieces will be arranged for solo instrument and for orchestra by Dr Koo. In the concert, selected members will play their piece as a soloist accompanied by the orchestra.
This concert provides an unprecedented opportunity for young musicians to have their first attempt as a soloist accompanied by an orchestra in front of a live audience.  They will learn the procedure and etiquette involved in such a performance, and will bring to a young musician an unforgettable and empowering experience. This valuable and unique experience will elevate their performance qualities and their love and passion for music.
