Wells Cathedral School Junior String Ensemble at The Bishop’s Palace
25th March 2020, 1pm
On 25th March 2020 at 1pm, The Bishop’s Palace is delighted to be hosting the incredible talents of the Wells Cathedral School Junior String Ensemble for a lunchtime recital.
Wells Cathedral School Junior String Ensemble is a group of young string players between the ages 10 and 14. Entry to the group is based on merit and the young students are very proud of their excellent reputation and high standard of performance. They rehearse once a week and give regular concerts conducted by their director, Catherine Lord, making use of a wide and varied repertoire.
The concert will be held in the beautiful conference room, upstairs in the main Palace and admission is free for concertgoers, with a retiring collection in aid of the school and the Palace.
The programme will include Ireland’s Downland Suite, Piazzola’s ‘Libertango’ and Vivaldi’s Concerto for 3 Violins - which is often considered one of Vivaldi’s most striking concertos; with its virtuosic parts for three solo violins.
Previous lunchtime concerts at the Palace have left standing room only, so be sure to arrive early to make sure of a seat.
The Bishop’s Table Café will be open and serving hot and cold food, so why not stay for lunch afterwards?
