Violin virtuoso Vanessa-Mae will be playing with a symphony orchestra at the spectacular woodlands near Tetbury on Saturday 18 July 2009.
Appearing at Westonbirt Arboretum as part of The Forestry Commission’s eagerly-anticipated Forest Tours 2009, tickets for Vanessa-Mae’s Cotswold concert are expected to sell-out, thanks to her unique fusion of classical and pop music, and diverse fan base.
A prolific talent, Vanessa-Mae was the youngest violinist ever to record the Tchaikovsky and Beethoven violin concertos and had three classical albums to her name by the ripe old age of 13. In her teens, she shattered the mould with the release of her album The Violin Player, which catapulted her into a worldwide phenomenon. And in 2009, with more than 10 million albums already sold, Vanessa-Mae will be releasing her latest album – to anticipated commercial and critical acclaim.
Alongside her band, and the National Symphony Orchestra, Vanessa-Mae will be accompanied by special guests the classical supergroup All Angels, with the evening culminating in a spectacular fireworks extravaganza.
Fans should expect an energetically passionate performance for which this talented artist has become famed.
