The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO), based in London, UK, will perform at the Valley Performing Arts Center in Northridge, CA on January 26, 2018 at 8pm. The RPO will be under the direction of conductor Thierry Fischer of the Utah Symphony Orchestra, and will feature French cellist Gautier Capuçon. The concert will consist of Petite Suite, by French composer Debussy, as well as Cello Concerto No. 1 in C Major by Haydn and The Firebird by Stravinsky.
