Year 6 pupils at The Russell School will have front-row seats at a concert that will feature some of the country’s most talented teenage musicians on Wednesday, March 1.

The lunchtime recital in Rickmansworth is being given by students at the Purcell School, Bushey, the UK’s oldest specialist music school. It has produced three recent winners of the BBC Young Musician competition.

The one-hour concert will include music by Dvorák, Bach, Chopin and Rachmaninov, as well as works by two lesser-known composers, Marseille-born Henri Tomasi, one of the first radio conductors, and Belgium’s Eugène Ysaÿe, known as the “King of the Violin” in the early 20th century.

The Three Rivers Music Society concert, which is open to all, will be held in the Baptist Church, High Street, Rickmansworth WD3 1EH and will begin at 1pm. Tickets £6 at the door for non-members. Free entry for under-25s.
