A rising young performer and Dvořák’s hugely popular cello concerto makes this an unmissable concert for music lovers.

Ben Messenger, former pupil of High and St Aidan’s C of E High , is in his first year at Durham University, having recently gained the prestigious Graham and Johanna Barker scholarship for music. Last year he won the concerto class of the Harrogate Competitive Festival for music, speech and drama.

He will join forces with the Harrogate Philharmonic Orchestra to perform Dvořák’s sumptuous Concerto on Saturday 16 February at 7:30pm at St. Marks Church, Leeds Road, Harrogate.

The concert will open with Mozart’s Seraglio Overture and introduce the audience to two lesser known works by Bartok and Coleridge-Taylor.

Tickets are available in advance from (with Paypal), P&C Music in Harrogate and Castlegate Books in Knaresborough and on the door priced at £12 adults, £5 students with cards and under 16s and carers assisting wheelchair users are free.
