The Halls, Norwich NR3 1AU – 7.30pm


First concert of the season with Estonian virtuoso Anna-Liisa Bezrodny

The AST’s 49th Season opens on Saturday 5 March at The Halls, Norwich (St Andrew’s Hall). Estonian/Finnish virtuoso Anna-Liisa Bezrodny will perform the Sibelius Violin Concerto in what promises to be a very special occasion – especially as Anna-Liisa has a direct family connection to Sibelius.

Postponed from Beethoven’s 250th anniversary year, the orchestra will also perform Beethoven’s very popular Symphony No 5. Conductor Toby Purser will make his debut with us, and the concert begins with Weber’s sparkling Der Freischutz Overture.
