And… A message from Michael

We are thrilled that Catherine Handley is joining us for this concert and the famous Bach Suite. She has a very special flute tone which is a real experience. We are playing two wonderful pieces by Mozart that are perhaps not quite so often performed and are an exciting discovery. The symphony no 30 is fresh and delightful as you might expect from a young man and the Divertimento is possible because we have the flute so a rare opportunity. Corinne Frost performs three really delightful pieces by John Ireland.

Welcome to the ever warm and welcoming atmosphere of Christ Church. And please do take note of the time of 7.30 pm.

PROGRAMME
The next event in this popular series of Orchestra Pro Anima concerts at Christ Church will again feature a mixed programme of music from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods. This time, the orchestra is delighted to welcome the acclaimed flautist Catherine Handley. Orchestra Pro Anima, with its director Michael Bochmann, was launched in January 2017 and is formed of musicians who have played together over a long period as members of the English String Orchestra and who have a real affinity with one another, forged over time. Their programmes, musicianship and warmth of presentation are proving to be a winning combination. This is a special venue for the orchestra as the Church has a most welcoming and relaxed atmosphere, allowing for spontaneity and a feeling of oneness with the audience, which are hallmarks of Orchestra Pro Anima concerts.

The Little Malvern Ensemble Trio – 3.00 pm Sunday 21st January 2018

The Little Malvern Ensemble Trio – 3.00 pm Sunday 21st January 2018

Our next concert. will be The Little Malvern Ensemble Trio – 3.00 pm Sunday 21st January 2018.

The music spans 200 years (we are playing it in chronological order!) and we include music with which you may well be familiar and some things that might be new to you. Nino Rota is a well known composer of film music (eg The Godfather pt 2) but less well known for his chamber music which includes this exciting and extraordinary trio. The trio by Peter Schindler is perhaps more unusual. It is scored for saxophone cello and piano and combines jazz (esp Latin) and classical elements in a classical framework. The composer has hinted that he may attend the concert – which is an exciting prospect! Peter lives in Berlin and is well known in Germany as a pianist and composer.
This is an accessible and entertaining programme and we will be delighted if you can join us on that afternoon. Tickets are available on the door and refreshments will be served in the interval.

Clarinet / Saxophone – Mike Halliday
Cello – Natalie Halliday
Piano – Tim Sidford

A programme of music for clarinet, cello and piano, spanning two centuries.

  • Beethoven: Trio in B flat Op11
  • Elgar: Salut d’Amour Op 12
  • Nino Rota: Trio (1973)
  • Peter Schindler: On The Way (1995)

Further variety comes with Peter Schindler’s trio which is scored for saxophone, cello and piano.

Refreshments will be served during the interval.

Tickets: £10 on the door, £20 family ticket, £6 student ticket, children 11 and under free.

Raising money for Megan Baker House

Raising money for Megan Baker House

Raising money for Megan Baker House

As the song goes – “the weather outside was frightful” – indeed the weather was atrocious. At one point we feared we may have to cancel, but the concert went ahead! And we were most grateful to have such a lovely and appreciative audience beginning their Christmas in true Christmas By Candlelight style! All the classics, beautifully sung and the musicians were simply superlative. A highlight personally had to be Catherine Handley playing the “Snowman”, but it is hard to choose any one highlight in truth as everything was so wonderful. We are still waiting to hear how much money was raised for Megan Baker House, working with young people with cerebral palsy. As our audience stepped back out to the cold night air they weren’t exactly Walking in the air but they did have a special Christmas magic to take home, and that wasn’t only Brian’s scrumptious mince pies!! Linda will be back next year, be sure not to miss it!
