The Chiltern Camerata celebrates 20 years of music making!
Our 20th anniversary concert on Sunday 15th May is fast approaching!
We are teaming up with the Chiltern Music Academy to present a family-friendly concert – a Stringfest – suitable for an audience of all ages. We are especially excited to be working with the youngsters from the highly regarded CMA .
The concert is on Sunday afternoon, 15th May, at 4.30 p.m. and will include works by Vaughan Williams, Purcell, Percy Grainger, Tony Osborne, Thomas Tallis – amongst others.
Those of you who have yet to experience one of our concerts may be wondering what to expect? Yes, we’ll be playing music for string orchestra drawn from a wide repertoire of what might loosely be described as ‘classical music’. Is that scary? No, not at all !
The emphasis of this concert will be informality and fun. It will not only showcase the Chiltern Camerata’s strings, but will also provide a wonderful opportunity for the talented youngsters from the CMA join with the orchestra for some of the works as well as featuring in their own right in others. We know from past experience how enlivening it is for the young players and the audience alike to share music-making in this way.
The concert will take place at a wonderful new venue – The King’s Church in Raans Road, Amersham. This very newly-established church is a perfect place for the performance of music; it is large, light, very well equipped and comfortable with level access and has plenty of car parking space. It has a fine acoustic which may explain why the violinist Nicola Benedetti likes to perform there!
You can be assured a warm welcome, fabulous music and the chance to mingle with the four conductors and the players over interval refreshments. There will also be some audience participation, so do come along and become part of the performance!
