We now have the programme for the next concert in the 2017/18 Curry Rivel Music series, the Thorne Trio: see here for details. This time, we have a wind band: oboe, clarinet and bassoon. As usual, quality, energy and variety are guaranteed. Drag along all those family and friends who say that they “don’t like classical music”; they will thank you afterwards. And as children and students get in free, it’s a cheap night out too!
What wonderful music we had from the Pelleas Ensemble last month! You can find a review of it here, to refresh those memories.
The next concert, in less than two weeks’ time, promises to be just as good. This time, we have world-class piano music from Alexandra Vaduva. So, clear your diary for 7 p.m. on Saturday 21st October.
If you aren’t telling your friends, you are doing them a serious disservice, so phone them now before they find out from someone else!
And don’t forget that students are free, so it won’t cost you a penny to “treat” your children, grand-children, nieces and nephews, and show them that great music need not be boring and stuffy.
The programme for the 2017-2018 season can be seen here.
Make sure that you get the dates in your diary now. The first one, on the 23rd September, is less than a month away!
This isn’t one of the Curry Rivel Music concerts, but don’t forget the trumpet concert in aid of the RNLI at Huish Episcopi church this Sunday. More information here.
And what a wonderful concert we had recently; I’m still buzzing from it! If you agree, don’t forget to tell all your friends, neighbours and family. So many people are missing some wonderful evenings right under their noses.
We now have the programme for the concert on 22 April, by Retorica, who are a violin duo. See here for information about the concert and the musicians. It looks great, so put it in your diary now! As usual, the concert is in St Andrew’s Church, Curry Rivel, starting at 7 pm.
Don’t forget the Curry Rivel Music concert this Saturday. Here are a couple of reviews of the ensemble to help persuade you:
“How often do you hear a whole programme of music that you’ve never heard, played on instruments that you’ve never heard and find the entire experience bewitching!” – Audience member
“Uniquely enchanting sound, fresh and delightful programme, faultless ensemble ….. The best performance of any kind I have heard in years” – Isabel Farrell (ex-manager, Live Music Now! Northwest)

We are extremely fortunate to have the world famous trumpeter CRISPIAN STEELE-PERKINS accompanied by the equally distinguished pianist Leslie Pearson playing a medley of classical & contemporary music from Handel to Bernstein together with his highly acclaimed demonstration of the techniques used to perform the famous trumpet tunes of the 17th & 18th centuries.
