Passionate, flamboyant, brilliantly incisive: The Orchestra of the Americas is one of the world’s most remarkable youth ensembles. Bringing together the most accomplished young musicians aged 18 to 30 from throughout North and South America in a single, powerful orchestra, it has toured the world to enormous acclaim.

Exuberant Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero is rightly one of today’s most admired musicians and she joins the Orchestra for the surging passions and unforgettable melodies of Tchaikovsky’s beloved ‘First Piano Concerto’.

Mexican conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto opens with the scintillating native rhythms of Mexican composer Carlos Chavez’s rousing ‘Sinfonía India’. He completes the programme with the hope, heroism and joyful optimism of Copland’s euphoric ‘Third Symphony’ – complete with his Fanfare for the Common Man incorporated into its finale.

The Orchestra of the Americas will perform their programme tonight (7th August) at The Usher Hall.
