Virtuoso Violin


The Midland Sinfonia is looking forward to its 2017–18 season, which starts on Fri Oct 6. Yes, FRIDAY: apart from one concert next year, the musical delights will play out on Fridays in St Laurence Church, Alvechurch.

A lot of folk enjoy taking a stroll up the hill so they can enjoy a drink either before, or at the interval or indeed both! There is also a free onsite car park.

The new programme can be picked up at various village outlets, including the library, or visit

The first concert, Virtuoso Violin, will feature George Ewart on violin and Robert Markham on piano.

Music includes Tartini’s Sonata in G minor ‘Devil’s Trill’; Paganini’s Caprices for Solo Violin; Beethoven’s Spring Sonata Op.24 in F; Brahms’ Sonata No.2 in A Op.100; Sarasate’s Carmen Fantasy, and Elgar’s La Capricieuse.

Tickets £14.50 on the door or £13 in advance from The Village Green Grocer and Florist, Alvechurch (the old bakery) or the website (free for FT students and schoolchildren accompanying an adult).
