The T&T Youth Philharmonic (TTYP) will host Classics Rule! Movies Rock! on August 23 and 24, at Queen’s Hall, St Ann’s, at 7.30 pm and 5.30 pm, respectively. 

The concerts will be the culmination of St Augustine Chamber Orchestra Saco/TTYP’s tenth annual three-week music workshop where over 200 string, wind, brass and percussion students, ages four to 24, for the first time were taught for 90 contact hours by principals of TTYP, supervised by Heemath Jahoor and Jhonny Cubides of Fesnojiv programme in Venezuela, and music director, Kenneth Listhrop. 

The first part of Classics Rule! will feature, by popular student demand, TTYP performing the Big Five Symphony No 5 in E minor, Op 64, by famous Russian composer of the Romantic era Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky (1840 – 1893). The Symphony was last performed for the first time in T&T in 2010, by TTYP. Listhrop will again lead the orchestra.
