Regretfully, we have had to cancel this concert because of the Covid-19 situation. All booked ticket monies have been refunded.
We might hope to stage this, or a similar, concert some time in 2021, so do look out for news.
Berlioz Roman Carnival Overture
Elgar Enigma Variations
Mendelssohn A Midsummer Night’s Dream
The Roman Carnival overture by Berlioz – his most virtuosic and most popular – sets the scene for this concert in what Queen Elizabeth I called the “fairest, goodliest and most famous parish church in England”.
Elgar’s Enigma Variations need no introduction, and this favourite if all English music – including the famous ‘Nimrod’ is sure to sound magnificent in this glorious building.
To finish this summer evening, Mendelssohn’s incidental music to A Midsummer Night’s Dream; stuffed with musical gems including, of course, the infamous Wedding March.
There will be a retiring collection for Headway Bristol
