Bite sized classics in Rubery and Bromsgrove to showcase local talents

Bromsgrove Editorial 15th Jul, 2022   0

RUBERY and Bromsgrove will be hosting ‘Bite Sized Classics’ concerts to showcase young talent.

At 11am tomorrow (Saturday, July 16) the Orpheus Quartet will take to the stage at St Chad’s Church in Rubery to play a mixture of well-loved classics and popular music in a classical style.

The violin, viola and cello quartet comprises four students from Hereford.

They met whilst playing in the Herefordshire Youth Orchestra and some of them are going on to study music at university and conservatoires in September.

The morning concert is part of the regular coffee mornings at St Chad’s aimed at bringing the community together.

Rev Claire Turner from St Chad’s Church said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming these young musicians.

“We are thrilled to be able to give them a platform to showcase their talent and are grateful to the Bromsgrove Festival for including the church as a venue for the Bite Sized series.

“I am sure our regular coffee morning attendees will enjoy the music and hope many others will attend too – our doors are open to all.”

Also on Saturday – at 3pm at St Peter’s Church, Rock Hill, Bromsgrove, the popular family duo of Charlotte and Alastair Moseley will be performing.

Charlotte has been playing violin since she was five and has previously delighted Bromsgrove audiences whilst leading the Orchestra of St John at many concerts.

For this Bite Sized Concert Charlotte will be accompanied by her father Alastair on piano.

The programme will include popular pieces including Handel’s Sonata in A Major, Mozart’s Adagio and the film score classic by Williams’ Schindler’s List.

Alistair said: “Charlotte and I are always keen to support the Bromsgrove Festival and bring the music we love to the audiences for free.

“Even if you don’t recognise the music by its name, there’s every chance you’ll know it from a TV advert or popular film.

“We are very much looking forward to performing on Saturday and hope there will be a big audience.”

The concerts are aimed at making classical music accessible to all.
