    The young generation should of course have the honors of kicking off the “Summer of Childhood.” With an open-air performance on the Europaplatz, right in front of the KKL Luzern, the National Youth Wind Orchestra of Great Britain will get us in tune for the Opening Concert to follow with the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA and Riccardo Chailly. The ensemble comprises more than 60 musicians between the ages of 14 and 21, and for their first Festival performance they are bringing along assorted hits from their homeland. Their catchy program ranges from festive fanfares, beginning with Music for the Royal Fireworks by that migrant to London, George Frideric Handel, to such modern British masters as William Walton, whose beloved march Crown Imperial was played at the coronations of George VI and Elizabeth II and also at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. They will also take a detour to America with dances from the ever-young West Side Story by Leonard Bernstein, whose 100th birthday is being celebrated by the music world in 2018.
