The North of the Border performance will consist of compositions inspired by the majestic landscapes and rich culture of the country.

The concert will open with Hamish MacCunn's Land of the Mountain and the Flood, before moving on to Max Bruch's Scottish Fantasy - a piece based on traditional Scottish folk tunes.

The soloist for Scottish Fantasy will be Thomas Leate, a violinist born and bred in Norfolk who has worked with ensembles such as the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and the Royal Northern Sinfonia.

The orchestra will also perform a rendition of Four Scottish Dances and will close with Felix Mendelssohn's Symphony No.3, sometimes referred to as the Scottish.
