Exciting season for Sinfonia

Posted on September 29 2014 at 9:54:53

The new season for the Midland Sinfonia has a broadened spectrum of entertainment.

The team has put together an exciting programme to encourage more local support and to ensure the continuation of a lively classical music scene in this part of Worcestershire.

First up is the annual general knowledge fundraising quiz, which will take place at the Ark on November 15 at 7.30pm.

Friends and families are encouraged to come along for a fun evening – it is also an opportunity to meet the TMS team and have your say. Book on 0121 447 7040 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

In March, TMS welcomes Holborne Brass for an enjoyable family evening with amusing banter and a wide variety of musical styles from early music to trad jazz.

In May, there is an engaging evening of words and music from Appassionata, a harp and flute duo who were featured on Woman’s Hour after they released their CD entitled Music to Iron By

The Enigma Quartet will again delight everyone in April with another of their themed evenings, this time with memorable music from favourite films.

And the Sinfonia’s musical director, Richard Laing, will conduct the strings section in the annual candlelit concert in December. The programme includes the Bach Double Violin Concerto, which Richard will perform with Shulah Oliver, a well-known leader and soloist.

A visit to Artrix in February adds wind players into the mix in the ever popular Symphonies No 104 by Haydn and No 4 by Beethoven. The annual Young Musicians’ Showcase takes place in March 2015, which is a free event for all to enjoy.

The success of the Celebrity Chamber Concert as part of the Bromsgrove Festival 2014 ensured that people from outside the area visited Alvechurch and experienced top quality music in the church. This June event will continue to be a highlight in the calendar.
