For the last concert of the Guernsey Symphony Orchestra 2018 Credit Suisse Series, the orchestra is delighted to perform an exciting and vibrant programme under the baton of David Rahbee.

To open the concert the orchestra will perform the third Symphonic Dance by Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg. Written in 1896 it draws inspiration from the folk world.

We are delighted to welcome to Guernsey for the first time, Croatian born Ana-Marija Markovina who will perform one of Grieg's most popular works for piano and his only completed concerto. Starting at the tender age of 5 years old, Markovina has travelled across the globe performing a huge range of repertoire impressing audiences far and wide.

To conclude the concert, Mendelssohn's third symphony, known as the 'Scottish' will be performed. Composed between 1829 and 1842 Mendelssohn was initially inspired to compose this symphony during his first visit to Britain in 1829.
