Wymondham Symphony Orchestra will accompany virtuoso violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky in a performance of Beethoven's violin concerto in the town's abbey at 7.30pm on Saturday.
The orchestra is joined by the Moscow-born virtuoso who has given concerts throughout Europe, Russia and the USA and, in 2006, won the prestigious Haverhill Sinfonia Soloists Competition.
More at home at the Royal Festival Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall or St John's Smith Square in London, Sitkovetsky can be heard in in an inspiring local setting.
The orchestra will also be showing off their talents with Brahms' stirring Academic Festival Overture and the beautiful melodies and passionate drama of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No 5 in E minor.
The leader of the orchestra, Ralph Chadwick, said: “This concert features great orchestral works by three giants. Whether it's bringing out the lush harmonies of the Tchaikovsky or the fiery passion of the Beethoven, we are all looking forward to getting our teeth into this music.
“Our concerts frequently sell out so you are advised to get your tickets early!”
Tickets at £9, £8 concessions, £2 children from Book Fountain and Prelude Records.
