The third concert in the KZN Philharmonic’s 2016 World Symphony Winter Series which takes place in the Durban City Hall on June 2 at 19h30 celebrates youth month.

The KZN Phil is joined by the Bochabela String Orchestra from Bloemfontein in a programme which features Shostakovich’s Festive Overture performed with the KZN Youth Wind Band. Clayton Penrose-Whitmore, a 22 year old African American violinist from a Detroit-based minority youth string programme, performs Wieniawski’s Violin Concerto No.2. The evening wraps up with Lutoslawski’s Concerto for Orchestra, all under the baton of resident conductor Lykele Temmingh.
