Preview: Havant Symphony Orchestra: “Sound the trumpet!”

Havant Symphony Orchestra (HSO) returns following an 18-month hiatus with a wonderful offering of English favourites: Elgar’s Enigma Variations and Britten’s seascapes from his opera Peter Grimes conducted by Jonathan Butcher. The highlight of the concert will be Zoë Perkins playing Hummel’s sparkling Trumpet Concerto in E flat.

Zoë was one of five brass finalists in the BBC Young Musician of the Year 2016 competition, the initial field consisting of over 400 members. She was praised for her challenging repertoire choices and sensitive playing.

Having graduated with a masters from the Royal Academy of Music, Zoë is now enjoying performing with both professional and amateur orchestras across the UK and Europe. A rising star in the classical music world, her appearance with the HSO should not be missed.
