A young Icelandic violinist will be the soloist at Scarborough Symphony Orchestra’s next concert.

Eva Thorarinsdottir is a graduate of the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester where she won numerous prizes for her solo performances.

She recently appeared as soloist with the BBC Symphony Orchestra before a sold- out audience at the London Barbican and performance reviews said she “stole the show”.

Eva is looking forward to performing the Sibelius Violin Concerto in Scarborough. “It is a hugely satisfying work to perform with orchestra. It has so many beautiful moments different colours and expressions.”

The concert is at Scarborough’s Methodist Central Hall in Queen Street, beginning at 7.30pm on Saturday July 19. It will be preceded by a free talk about the music at 6.45pm.

Tickets can be purchased in advance from Scarborough Music and The Art Cafe in Whitby as well as through the orchestra’s website www.scarborough-orchestra.co.uk or at the door. Admission is £10, but £8.50 for concessions. Children up to 16 and full-time students are free.

Free parking is available.
