VIRTUOSO Swiss violinist Melina Mandozzi will be the guest soloist when the IW Symphony Orchestra performs its first concert of the year at Newport’s Medina Theatre.
Mandozzi, who studied under legendary violinist Yehudi Menuhin, and who made her debut performance with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, aged 12, will be performing on the Island next Saturday, January 20. 
She has performed all over the world and has appeared with the London Symphony Orchestra as guest leader.
During the concert, Mandozzi will play Elgar’s Violin Concerto, first performed by Fritz Kreisler in 1910. The programme will also feature Shostakovich’s First Symphony, which will dominate the first half of the concert. The show, in support of the Island’s independent lifeboats, also includes John Ireland’s Epic March, which was commissioned by the Ministry of Information, as part of its aim to foster community spirit during the Second World War.
The concert starts at 7.15pm.
