Since its creation in 1961 PDGYA scheme has helped to launch the careers of dozens of young musicians, including Steven Isserlis and Craig Ogden.”

"We are delighted to welcome these two young musicians to Alnwick for a recital which will include violin and cello duos, along with solo cello and solo violin works.”

The recital takes place on Monday, October 4 in St Paul’s Church on Percy Street at 7.30pm.
