YGO October Concert Instrument Concept 1920x1080 with logo

Our second concert in the Barbican this season sees the return of Leeds Festival Chorus. They will perform in the first and last pieces - the Parry, and the mighty Mendelssohn oratorio, his setting of a poem by Goethe, with the choir joined by three wonderful soloists from the RNCM. The Mendelssohn oratorio may not be that well known but it is a superb work that puts all the performers on their mettle! Elgar makes an appearance in all three concerts this season, this time with a favourite orchestral showpiece, the 'Enigma Variations'.

Please note that this is a Sunday matinee.


  • Parry - Blest Pair of Sirens
  • ‍Elgar - Variations on an Original Theme (Enigma)
  • Mendelssohn - Die erste Walpurgisnacht

Vocal soloists – From the Royal Northern College of Music
