Elgar Cello Concerto
Orff Carmina Burana
Carmina Burana, a riot of Medieval poetry set in the iconic musical soundscape of its composer showcases the full might of Suffolk Youth Orchestra and Suffolk Youth Choir. As it catapults the listener head-first into the action, Carmina Burana, intended by Orff as a piece for all the senses, does not disappoint.

The power of music to support health and well-being is increasingly seen as a vital ingredient at all stages of our lives. Through the formation of Suffolk Youth Choir, we are thrilled to extend the gift of music to even more Suffolk students.
