Gloucester Music Society: New season preview!
Another exciting season of music is about to burst upon Gloucester!
For a Society which was formed 79 years ago, the emphasis is very much on today. Programmes are designed to appeal to those unfamiliar with “classical” music, as well as seasoned lovers of chamber music, with explorations of music both familiar and unfamiliar presented by world-class musicians from around the world.
We extend a warm welcome to all, whether you attend for a single concert or sign up for the series of five concerts. The concerts next season celebrate the inspiration of two great cities – Vienna and Paris.
The season opens on Thursday 16 October 2008 when the ensemble English Ayres pays tribute to the great Gloucestershire-born composer Vaughan Williams, who studied for a time in Paris, and whose death fifty years ago is being widely commemorated. Other concerts include the Emerald Ensemble on Thursday 20 November 2008 in a programme of Piazzolla and Bartok plus Messiaen’s “Quartet for the End of Time”, then a visit from the outstanding young Portuguese guitarist Eurico Pereira on Thursday 22 January 2009, to start off the New Year. On Thursday 19 February 2009 the English Piano Trio presents a programme entitled “The Viennese Tradition” and the season concludes on 19 March 2009 with the outstanding young Heath Quartet in a programme of Webern, Berg and Schubert.
All concerts take place at St Mary de Lode Church, Archdeacon Street, Gloucester at 7.30pm and individual tickets are £13.00, £5.00 student, children under 15 free, and parents accompanying children are £8.00. A discount is available for those booking for the series.
