The internationally-acclaimed Young European Strings Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Ronald Masin and members of the YES Intermediate Orchestra are celebrating a Christmas performance for the whole family.
 
The Christmas concert features all our students - from the age of four years to nineteen years.
 
Our special guest this year is International and National Award Winning, 12 year old Daimee Ng violinist, playing J. Haydn’s violin concerto in C, accompanied by the Young European Strings Chamber Orchestra conducted by Ronald Masin.
 
Santa Claus is bringing a special gift to everyone in the concert hall and our resident Patisserie Chef Fiona Gaffney is treating the public with her Christmas cup cakes.
