|St Barnabas Summer Proms 2014|
Six evening concerts ending with gala on August 8th
This major classical music festival will be held from Monday July 28th to Friday August 8th at St Barnabas Church.
There will be six evening concerts, ending with our famous ‘Last Night of the Proms’ Gala on August 8th, with all the traditional items including Land of Hope and Glory and Jerusalem.
All the concerts feature outstanding musicians playing immortal masterpieces by popular composers. They provide perfect summer entertainment for local music-lovers. Concerts are held ‘in the round’ so the audience is close to the musicians, and we have a first-rate grand piano previously used by the BBC for broadcasts, and a ‘big screen’ so everyone can see the musicians.
Admission to the concerts is £10 (£5 young people), except for the Last Night Gala which will be £20.
No tickets are issued beforehand – just turn up. The church is large and admission is guaranteed. All proceeds will go towards the St Barnabas Funds. Full details of all the concerts are available on www.barnabites.org/summerproms/ .
The concerts start at 7.30 pm, and are as follows.
Monday 28th July : Viv McLean piano recital Beethoven, Chopin, Gershwin etc
Wednesday 30th July : The Grier Trio Mozart, Franck and Brahms
Friday 1st August : ST BARNABAS OPERA GALA
