This concert features not one, but two concertos by Mozart.

 

His ever-popular Flute and Harp Concerto puts two of WSO’s regular players

in the spotlight – flautist Monica McCarron and harpist Elizabeth Green.  

In previous seasons WSO has welcomed celebrated cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason (twice) as well as sister Isata – both of whom have gone on to international stardom.  The Orchestra is delighted to welcome a third member of the remarkable Kanneh-Mason family – younger sister Jeneba, playing one of Mozart’s dazzling early piano concerts which exemplifies the great composer’s technical prowess on the keyboard.
