A musical evening
The brilliant young conductor Stephen Broad, from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, believes in pushing Stirling orchestra out of their comfort zone.
Tonight they responded to his energy and enthusiasm with a performance that surprised themselves with a programme that included Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries, and Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite.
But then they were runners up in the 2016 BBC Great Orchestra Challenge in the Albert Hall in London.
So they are used to being pushed by this young dynamic conductor.
