Dozens of young musicians, the best students from the music schools of Perth, Kinross and the Junior Royal Scottish Conservatory of Glasgow will be guests of the Festival of Youth Orchestras, with a program that from the most famous pages of Giusepe Verdi will come to John Williams.

Hymn and triumphal march from Aida will open the Florentine evening; it will then be the turn of Gustav Holst and his St. Paul's Suite , written in 1912 for the St. Paul's Girls' School in London, of which the composer was musical director from 1905 to 1934.

From Holst to Gary Ziek with the Concerto for percussion and orchestra that will make use of the precious collaboration of the soloist Guy Bathgate.

The orchestra will then perform the Jazz Orchestra Suite n. 2 by the Russian composer Dimitrij Shostakovich, a well-known work under the subtitle Suite for variety orchestra, which became famous as the soundtrack to Stanley Kubrick's film Eyes wide shut , as well as the official soundtrack of the Giffoni Film Festival, the film festival founded by Claudio Gubitosi for children and boys in 1971.

Always linked to the film world will be the performances of the Tribute to the film composer by the American John William, father of the soundtracks of ET, The shark , Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones, Harry Potter - just to name a few - and The greatest Showman , by the American Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, winners of the Golden Globe in 2018.

The Perth Youth Orchestra continues its musical journey with Bugler's Holiday by Leroy Anderson, a short and original concert piece that combines Anglo-American musical styles, retracing his biography, from his birth in Cambridge to his career as a musician and interpreter of the Pentagon, during the second world war.

To celebrate the day of death of Louis Armstrong, who died on 6 July 1971 in New York, we will be able to enjoy the Satchmo Tribute , a tribute to the great American trumpet player, nicknamed Satchmo, the myth of Jazz.

Some pages of the Scottish musical tradition, which will involve the soloist violinist Ola Stanton, and the most famous songs of the musical Miss Saigon by Claude Michael Sch ö nberg, inspired by Giacomo Puccini's Madama Butterfly , sign the precious Scottish-Tuscan musical union for the 21st edition of our festival and end the concert program.
