Classical Music Concert

Cossham Hall, Thornbury

Classical Music Concert with Roger Huckle and Members of the Bristol Ensemble

Saturday 20th October is a date for your diary when members of the Bristol Ensemble, Bristol's professional Chamber Orchestra led by violinist Roger Huckle, will once again visit Thornbury with a concert of popular classical music.

Following five previous Thornbury Autumn concerts, Roger has designed a feast of strings with pieces by Mendelsson, Holst, Grieg and Elgar.

Nothing disturbs the graceful amiability of Elgar's Serenade for Strings in three enchanting movements, these 'little tunes' as he called them, are the most frequently performed of all his works.

Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in D minor, composed when was just 13, has been consistently popular with audiences the world over since its rediscovery in the middle of the 20th century by Yehudi Menuhin.

Gustav Holst's popular St Paul's Suite, named after the London school where he was the music director, is a fascinating opportunity to spot the well known folk tunes woven together within the piece.

Edvard Grieg's Holberg Suite is a collection of delightfully fresh baroque-style dances, written in 1912 but inspired by a famous 17th century Norwegian playwright.

It will be a unique experience to hear members of the Bristol Ensemble in the United Reformed Church in Chapel Street Thornbury. The Bristol Ensemble is a musician's collective inspired and led by Roger Huckle, bringing together the best of the region's performers noted for their accessible and passionate performances.

This eagerly awaited concert which is part of the fund raising for the Armstrong Hall Redevelopment Project (Phase 1) will be held in the United Reformed Church on Saturday 20th October at 7.30pm. Tickets at £16 each, to include interval finger food, can be obtained from Thornbury Town Hall or by phoning 01454 412272.
