St. Peter’s Sinfonia

St. Peter’s Sinfonia, St. Peter’s Church, Highfield Road, Hall Green

Saturday, April 16th 2011 7:30pm

The sophomore outing for this occasional string ensemble (their inaugural performance was in March 2008), formed by some of Birmingham’s most talented young players under the baton of 20-year old Alpesh Chauhan, Hall Green born though currently studying at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, in a concert in aid of Cancer Research UK.

The programme features six pieces and is a mixture of popular works and less well known numbers:

Puccini – I Crisantemi
Grieg – Holberg Suite
Debussy – Andantino from String Quartet
Mozart – Eine Kleine Nachtmusik
Albinoni – Adagio
Britten – Simple Symphony

With players drawn from a variety of the region’s most accomplished local youth orchestras and music schools (all members have achieved at least Grade 8, the Royal School of Music’s highest numbered Grade), the quality of performance should be memorable. The orchestra will be led by Bethan Morgan.

Tickets (£8, £6 concessions, and including a free programme and interval refreshments) will only be available on the door and the orchestra are indebted to St. Peter’s Church for their invaluable assistance in hosting the concert. The Church is on the No. 76 bus route near to the junction with Robin Hood Lane and is a short walk from Yardley Wood railway station as well as bus services No. 5 and No. 3.
