Star Chloe teams up with NPO

The highly talented Chloe Hanslip wil be playing the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in Nottingham on Saturday, April 5, in the city’s Royal Concert Hall.

Still only 25 years old, Chloe Hanslip is an international violinist who made her debut at the BBC Proms 11 years ago, at a remarkably tender age.

She played the Elgar Violin Concerto to great acclaim in Nottingham last year in the Albert Hall and this year returns to the city to play with Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra.

She has played in all the major UK concert halls, several in Europe, as well as Tokyo and New York.

To conduct the Tchaikovsky, NPO will welcome back a former conductor of the orchestra, Paul Murphy, who now conducts Birmingham’s famous Royal Ballet.

Paul left Nottingham Philharmonic Orchestra in 1992 to join the Ballet and, besides his work with the company, he has conducted most of Britain’s best orchestras since then.

Paul will also be directing the orchestra in Maurice Ravel’s La Valse and he shares the podium with Mark Heron, who will conduct the Hebrides Overture by Felix Mendelssohn and Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Mussorgsky.

The orchestra is celebrating its 40th birthday with this concert, which is packed full of attractive works.

Tickets are available from the Royal Centre box office by calling 0115 9895555.
