    Richard Jenkinson - Conductor

    Claire Prewer - Soprano

    Charlotte Moseley - Violin

    Sibelius Violin Concerto

    Rhapsodic, lyrical, rhythmic, tender, but with gritty dissonances, this concerto is a unique example of the violin concerto genre. It not only demands extreme virtuosity but much physical stamina as the whole compass of the violin is engaged and explored. Charlotte Moseley presents this concerto in her home town of Bromsgrove.

    Mahler Symphony no 4

    Gustav Mahler’s wondrous Symphony no 4 shows all the characteristics of his distinctive vision: his love of nature, grotesque humour, scintillating orchestration, integration of song, and abstract instrumentals.  Claire Prewer's soprano role illustrates a child's vision of heaven.  This is Mahler's deeply personal art, but being the shortest of his symphonies, it is at once accessible, yet deeply affecting.

    Tickets £10 in advance, £12 on the door, u16s free.

    On sale from 28 September 2016

  • Sat 30 Apr 2016 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM

    St John's Church, Kidderminster Rd, Bromsgrove B61 7JW map

    A blockbuster of a work, Verdi’s Requiem is often described as the best opera he never wrote. Lavish, dramatic and downright scary, this piece will pin you to your seat. It’s the ultimate in dramatic intensity: this extraordinary work speaks of heaven and hell, fire and earth, darkness and light in music that is as much theatrical as it is devotional. 

    Prepare for a whirlwind of a performance from a super line-up of soloists including Claire Prewer, together with the ladies and gentlemen of the Chorus of the Orchestra of St John.
