THE ORCHESTRA of St John will hold its fourth annual MusicFest at the historic church next weekend.
The big event, which will take place on Saturday and Sunday (July 18 and 19) will be a real celebration of classical music.
This year’s MusicFest will feature three performances and will welcome back organist Jonathan Kingston, the former director of music at St John’s Church and Bromsgrove School along with pianist Benjamin Frith.
He will also be playing at the morning service on the Sunday at 10.45am – when Mozart’s Missa Brevis in F is set to be performed.
For the gala concert later that day, which will also be the orchestra’s final performance in the Bromsgrove Festival, they will be playing the Seventh Symphony.
The centrepiece of the concert will see the welcome return of Benjamin Frith to play Beethoven’s fifth and hugely popular piano concerto The Emperor.
Tickets for the evening concerts are £10 for adults while children and students go free.
Tickets, which include interval refreshments, and more information are available by visiting www.artrix.co.uk or calling the Artrix box office on 01527 577330.
