LIVE classical music returns to the town on Friday night, September 24, when the Fitzwilliam String Quartet performs at Bromsgrove School.
It marks the start of an exciting new programme by Bromsgrove Concerts.
Tonight’s concert – at 7.30pm in the Cobham Theatre, part of Bromsgrove Prep School – includes Beethoven’s String Quartet Opus 131, Shostakovich’s String Quartet Opus 133 and Wolf’s Italian Serenade.
This is the first of eight concerts being staged between now and April 2022.
Other artists include Carducci and Tippett String Quartets, Jenkinson-Frith Duo, and the legendary guitarist, Craig Ogden.
Studies show classical music has genuine health benefits, including lowering blood pressure, reducing stress levels and fighting depression.
People are urged to immerse themselves in some marvellous music, played live and those who cannot make the concert can view the concert on live stream in the comfort of their own home.
Tickets are £22 to attend the concert, or £8 to view the live-stream, and can be purchased from the Bromsgrove School box office at bromsgrove-school.co.uk/whats-on.aspx
Children and young people under 18 can attend the concert free of charge.
Bromsgrove Concerts has been running for 54 years and stages eight concerts-a-year, featuring the best classical music chamber groups from around the world.
After originally setting up in Bromsgrove School it moved to North Bromsgrove High in the 1980s and 90s and then on to Artrix which has since closed.
This season’s eight concerts will be performed in the Cobham Theatre, in the Prep School, and Routh Hall in the main school grounds.
Bromsgrove School will be the new home for the foreseeable future and concert organisers are excited, not only about the good facilities, but also that the concerts are streamed.
