Farnham Youth Choir, one of the UK's leading upper voice choirs for 11-18 year olds and twice winner of the Sainsbury Youth Choir of the Year, joins forces with the orchestra to perform two movements from Vaughan-Williams' quintessentially English Folk Songs for Four Seasons Suite and Fauré's beautiful Cantique de Jean Racine as well as singing a number of items with piano.

The orchestra will also perform movements from Handel's ever-popular Water Music Suite and Dvorak's 7th Symphony, described by Dvorak specialist John Clapham as 'without doubt... his greatest Symphony.' 

The symphony is arguably Dvorak's most ambitious in structure and the most consciously international in its message.
