Emily leaves EU to perform at Cathedral of Forest

Accomplished Gloucestershire oboist Emily Stephens is flying home from her studies in Germany to perform at the historic Cathedral of the Forest.

She will be performing 19th century composer Kalliwoda’s Oboe Concertino with the Royal Forest of Dean Orchestra at their Summer Concert on Saturday June 29.

Emily, who has been a commended finalist in the Gloucestershire Young Musician of the Year contest, has been studying in Lübeck as part of her course at the Royal Academy of Music.

The former Pate’s Grammar School pupil has played in the National Children’s and Youth Orchestras and was a member of the Junior Academy. Now living in London, she regularly plays with the Academy Symphony Orchestra with Oliver Knussen, Symphonic Wind Ensemble, as well as freelancing in and around London.

The Summer Concert is the Forest orchestra’s second this year featuring young musical talent under the baton of dynamic Stefano Boccacci, who has just completed two weeks’ experience with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales as part of his studies at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

The concert programme will feature favourites such as Mozart’s Overture to Don Giovanni, Verdi’s Prelude to La Traviata and Schubert’s famous Unfinished Symphony.

The concert is at The Cathedral of the Forest, Newland, Coleford on Saturday 29 June at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8, £6 concessions and schoolchildren free.

A retiring collection will be held for All Saints’ Church Fabric Fund.
