Mainly Mozart | Soloist: Braimah Kanneh-Mason (Violin)
with Monica McCarron (Flute) and Elizabeth Green (Harp)
This concert features not one, but two concertos by Mozart.

His ever-popular Flute and Harp Concerto puts two of WSO’s regular players in the spotlight – flautist Monica McCarron and harpist Elizabeth Green.

Elizabeth Green enjoys a successful career as an orchestral harpist performing with ensembles such as Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, National Symphony Orchestra, Birmingham Royal Ballet, Royal Ballet Sinfonia, English National Opera, London Mozart Players, London Philharmonic, London Concert Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic, Stavanger Symphony Orchestra, Mariinsky Ballet, National Symphony Orchestra of Russia, London Chamber Orchestra and the Hong Kong Chamber Orchestra.

Recent highlights have included performing Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker with the Birmingham Royal Ballet last Christmas and a trip to Dubai with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra in February.

Monica McCarron was a multiple prizewinning student at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, where she made her concerto debut at London’s Barbican Hall with Thierry Fischer conducting. She has played guest principal flute with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, English National Opera, London Chamber Orchestra, London Mozart Players, Irish Chamber Orchestra and European Chamber Orchestra, amongst many others. In recent times Monica has particularly enjoyed invitations to guest in Scandinavia; playing principal flute with Bergen Philharmonic, Norrköping Symphony Orchestra and the Arctic Philharmonic.

In previous seasons WSO has welcomed celebrated cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason (twice) as well as sister Isata – both of whom have gone to international stardom. The Orchestra is delighted to welcome a third member of the remarkable Kanneh-Mason family – younger brother Braimah. He has performed throughout the UK, Europe, USA and the Caribbean. An avid chamber musician, Braimah is a member of the Kanneh-Mason Piano Trio, Cassadó Ensemble and Kaleidoscope Collective. He has performed at venues and festivals such as the BBC Proms, Wigmore Hall, Barbican Hall, Kings Place, Highgate International Chamber Music Festival, Leicester International Chamber Music Festival and collaborated with artists such as Nicola Benedetti, Tom Poster and Priya Mitchell.
