Celebrating the might and majestic power of the world of brass, this concert features two of the most popular brass inspired pieces of music ever written.

Opening this concert is Sibelius' expression of Finnish national pride, Finlandia. This scenic work has featured in block buster movies such as The Hunt for Red October and Die Hard 2.

Our guest soloist John Foster is widely regarded as one of the world's leading exponents of performance on historical trumpets and is the Artistic Director of the renowned ensemble Australian Baroque Brass. He will be performing the instantly recognisable and virtuosic Trumpet Concerto by Haydn.

Concluding the concert is the world premiere of a work by New Zealand composer and conductor, Kenneth Young. Composed for the CSO and multi award winning Woolston Brass Band, this piece combines the forces of two of Christchurch's most iconic musical organisations.

Having started his musical career as a tuba player, Young studied composition at Canterbury and Auckland Universities and has won a number of awards and accolades for his compositions. It is a great privilege to be premiering his latest work.
