29 - 31 Dec 2017

Part of the Kirklees Concert Season 2017-18

Justin Brown, Conductor
Jeni Bern, Soprano

A New Year celebration like no other. Join the Orchestra of Opera North and conductor Justin Brown as they close the year with a traditional musical trip through Austria-Hungary with a glittering world of waltzes, polkas, marches and song.

Equally at home on the symphonic platform as on the operatic podium, conductor Justin Brown, General Music Director of Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe, Germany, and Music Director Laureate of the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, will sweep you off your feet and into the New Year with this delightful afternoon of Viennese classics.

...the conductor Justin Brown drew a luminous, technically brilliant musical performance from the singers and orchestra
