2023/24 Leicester season
We return to De Montfort Hall with a range of repertoire and soloists for five sensational concerts. Hear three inspiring violinists – 16-year-old Leia Zhu, Philharmonia Featured Artist Nicola Benedetti, and long-standing Phiharmonia collaborator, Esther Yoo – and acclaimed pianist Steven Osborne. In January, step into the world of film and join us for a night at the Oscars.
Our November concert is part of our series, Let Freedom Ring: Celebrating the Sounds of America. The series celebrates the dazzling diversity of American music, the creative crosscurrents between classical music and jazz, and the musicians whose distinctive sounds have shaped their country’s identity.
