LUNCHTIME CONCERTS 2013/14 SEASON
Nicholas Daniel, Artistic Director
Welcome to the 2013/14 season of Lunchtime Concerts to be held once again at Holy Trinity Church.
This season we welcome some old friends and some new ones. The season is bracketed by the Festival’s two favourite pianists Katya Apekisheva and Charles Owen. Both are outstanding performers.
We welcome back Craig Ogden, Julius Drake, Tom Poster, the Navarra String Quartet, the Haffner Wind Quintet, and the Aronowitz Ensemble.
New friends this year are the delightful Aquinas Trio, the virtuoso violinist Jennifer Pike, the stunning soprano Ruby Hughes and the exceptional Brodsky String Quartet. Sadly we have lost the clarinettist Mark Simpson who has been overwhelmed by the pressure of composing but we are indebted to Michael Collins one of the UK’s finest clarinettists for replacing Mark at the last minute. I am also very pleased that we are able to represent young players with Kensington Brass, all hailing from the Royal College of Music.
Last year, we broke our audience records with all but one concert attended by over 200 people and in one case 270! We are incredibly grateful to you all for supporting these concerts and hope you enjoy this season as much as you did the last.
With all my good wishes,
