Join us and celebrate 20 years of the Philharmonia in Bedford! We are proud to be marking two decades of residency, bringing the world’s greatest classical artists to the Corn Exchange, and also working in partnership with local children and musicians through our vibrant education programme. We’re delighted that the great Vladimir Ashkenazy is able to come together with soloists from the Orchestra to lead the celebrations. Tonight, Ashkenazy showcases Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony as part of his international series marking the composer’s 150th Anniversary.
