This is to confirm details of the music concert ” The Lyrical Euphonium” on Thursday 22nd January at 9pm at Holy Trinity church, in aid of the bicentenary church restoration project currently underway. A poster has been attached for those of you able and willing to display a copy in order to help publicise the event as much as possible.
Sadly, the euphonium has not shared the glamour of other orchestral instruments and is rarely heard as a solo performer, outside of brass and military bands. However, some composers have written some wonderful orchestral pieces for this most lyrical of brass instruments. As we hope to include many in the programme (see poster for full programme), this is a good opportunity to introduce the music and the instrument to a new audience, as well as share both with those fortunate to be already acquainted with them.
We would be most grateful if you could support this event. Tickets are a modest 7.50 euros on the door, but will be available from the church office from one week beforehand.
We are extremely grateful to maestro Martin Smith for his offer of a gratis performance during his short stay on the island, and to our friend Andras Hennel for his free services as accompanist.
