Bring A Young Person

A Unique Opportunity For A Cultural Evening With Orchestral Masters

Bought to you by:


If like us, you believe that variety is the spice of life, we couldn’t think of an evening with any more punch than the opportunity to watch the Philharmonia Orchestra play some of the best classical music from Grieg, Brahms and Dvorak whilst being conducted by the one and only Vladimir Ashkenazy.



We’re seeking to offer a select few businesses the opportunity to bring a young person to experience this amazing night of musical perfection at the Boldfield Orchestral Series at the Cambridge Corn Exchange.


You may wonder why we’re doing this. It’s quite simple. It’s really easy to fill seats with culture vultures, but something more of a challenge is to engage with the younger generation when it comes to music and expand their appreciation and understanding for such a diverse genre of music.


We also thought to make the offer ultra attractive, we’d make the event free to attend for both of you. But even more than that, we’re going to give an opportunity to meet members of the Philharmonia Orchestra. We’ll add in some canapes and drinks before the concert and during the break and hope that you’ll enjoy it as much as we will.



We are seeking to introduce yougsters to the wonders of classical music, broaden their horizons and we thought that we may as well start with one of the top orchestras – conducted by a living legend in classical music.


To take part in this amazing, once in a lifetime event, simply complete the form below.

Vladimir Ashkenazy – Conductor/Piano

One of the few artists to combine a successful career as a pianist and conductor, Russian-born Vladimir Ashkenazy inherited his musical gift from both sides of his family; his father David Ashkenazy was a professional light music pianist and his mother Evstolia (née Plotnova) was daughter of a chorus master in the Russian Orthodox church. Ashkenazy first came to prominence on the world stage in the 1955 Chopin Competition in Warsaw and as first prize-winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels in 1956. Read More…

Sayaka Shoji – Violin

Educated in Siena at the Accademia Musicale Chigiana and Cologne at the Hochschule für Musik Köln under Zakhar Bron, the Japanese violinist Sayaka Shoji has been described by Gramophone magazine as “a formidable musician, able  to draw on huge reserves of stamina and the unflinching equal of anything thrown at her.” Shoji was the youngest and first Japanese violinist to win the Paganini Competition in Genoa in 1999 and since then has established strong connections with world renowned conductors including; Zubin Mehta, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Mariss Jansons, Paavo Järvi…Read More…
