Tonight marks our last concert for 2015. We’ve had lots of fun exploring a wealth of new & old repertoire through the concert series this year & are very much looking forward to what we can find for the series in 2016. We are already planning a new transcription for the New England Bach Festival in May and some other fun collaborations – we’ll keep you posted!
A special thanks goes out to Kez Watson for hosting our whole series this year – so to say thanks we had an excellent whisky celebration at The Welder’s Dog recently along with some friends from various distilleries… In order of appearance:
First round: Penderyn Peated
Second round: Lark, Laphroiag Quarter Cask, Big Peat
Third round: Talisker Storm, Talisker Port Ruighe and the 10 year Talisker
Fourth round: Octomore
We staggered home feeling fantastic! Thanks to Tom & the guys from The Welder’s Dog!
Tonight’s concert features some favourites that we’ve discovered from the repertoire we’ve explored this year, a new piece, and a couple of old favourites by local composers. The new piece which has really stood out to us this year (that we’ll also be playing tonight) is ‘Still the Sea’ by Welsh composer Steve Goss. What a very special piece of music that we’re just starting to discover and which will stay with us for a long time. Please come along (if you haven’t signed up already) and join us, although seating is very limited.
We look forward to seeing you there and also for the series next year. Happy Christmas and New Year!
