Our early Summer concert will be  in aid of Cancer Research UK on June 1st at Hartlebury Castle with special guest pianist Anita D’Attellis.

Anita has performed extensively as a solo pianist, chamber musician and accompanist, with recitals at the Brighton and Cheltenham International Festivals, Snape Maltings, the Royal Festival Hall, the Royal Albert Hall and the Symphony Hall, Birmingham.  She is particularly keen on twentieth century and contemporary music. She graduated with first class honours in music at the University of Birmingham, followed by Postgraduate study at the Royal Academy of Music.

Anita is an experienced teacher; she was previously Head of Music at Trevor-Roberts School in Hampstead, and later became Head of Keyboard at Sherborne Girls, Dorset.  She is the school accompanist at Queen Anne’s, Caversham, and teaches piano at Eton College.

Final shout out for our annual concert!

Less than a week now until our annual concert which this year will be at Mary’s church Kidderminster. As well as ourselves we are excited about being joined by two very special local guest artists!

Luke Swatman was nicknamed the ‘Worcester Pavarotti’ after his appearance on the TV show the Voice and will be singing a mixture of classical aria’s and songs from musical theatre. Our second guest is pianist, conductor and composer Tony Bridgewater who will entertain the audience with works from composers such as Liszt, Schubert and Beethoven.

It’s not too late to get your tickets from our usual sources or via Eventbright!

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday evening (20th) doors open at 7pm.

Exciting news from Leapgate Centre

Outdoor benches


Last year we supported a local charity, the Leapgate Activity Centre, which is based in Stourport  and provides support for children and adults with additional needs and primary learning difficulties.

We recently heard that they had spent the money we raised from our concert on some fabulous outside furniture for the centre, and we are delighted to share some photographs with you.

More information about the centre can be found on their website
