Ambitious concert in Inkberrow for child victims of Chernobyl
7:00pm Tuesday 18th September 2012 in Local
ST Peter’s Church, Inkberrow, will once again be the venue for an ambitious orchestral concert in aid of the child victims of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
Jenny Powis has for the 10th successive year organised this event which has raised thousands of pounds for this worthy cause. The concert also raises funds for St Peter’s which this year has launched an appeal for the replacement of its church organ.
The players in the Inkberrow Sinfonia are drawn from professional and semi-professional musicians in the Worcestershire area under the direction of the distinguished conductor, Richard Laing.
The concert opens with Mozart’s boisterous overture to the opera “Così fan tutte”, followed by a performance of Grieg’s Holberg Suite by the strings of the orchestra. To conclude the first half, the orchestra will be joined by the outstanding young solo trumpeter David Geoghegan for a performance of Hummel’s sparkling trumpet concerto.
The final work will be Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony.
A spokesman said: “In the beautiful surroundings of Inkberrow’s 12th century church, this promises to be a rare musical treat, and a fitting celebration of the 10th anniversary of this musical event.”
The concert is on Saturday, September 22 at 7.30pm. Tickets costing £10.00 are available from Jenny Powis on 01386 792909 or from Inkberrow Post Office.
