Leeds Symphony Orchestra is returning to Knaresborough on 27th November for their first post-lockdown concert.

The concert will feature renowned guitarist Craig Ogden, who is the orchestra's honorary President. Craig is been named by Classic FM as one of the greatest guitarists of his generation. He will be performing the guitar concerto by Yorkshire composer Arthur Butterworth.

Also in the programme are Beethoven's famous 5th Symphony and the exiting overture Benvenuto Cellini by Berlioz.

The concert is dedicated to the memory of Knaresborough-born Martin Binks who was the orchestra's conductor for nearly 50 years until his death in December 2019. The programme was intended to be his 50th anniversary concert in 2020.

The orchestra is delighted to be performing in front of a live audience again, especially with such a distinguished soloist as Craig Ogden.

It is hoped that the concert will be a fitting tribute to Martin Binks, in his home town of Knaresborough.
