Music by that most universally-loved of composers, J S Bach, features in Orchestra of the Swan’s first matinee concert of the spring in the beautifully restored Town Hall, Birmingham.
The concert on Wednesday February 18 (2.30pm) features two of the composer’s Brandenburg Concertos, his Suite in B minor and a Concerto Grosso by Handel.
David Le Page (violin), flautist Diane Clark and Christine Whiffen (harpsichord), take the demanding solo roles in Brandenburg Concertos Nos 4 & 5, joining the nationally acclaimed Orchestra of the Swan, based in Stratford.
The concert is conducted by David Curtis and presented in his inimitable, friendly and accessible style, and there is an opportunity to chat to him and orchestra members at free pre and post-concert talks.
Orchestra of the Swan is at Town Hall Birmingham on Wed Feb 18 (2.30pm). Tickets, priced £6.50-£19.50 (with concessions), are available from the Box Office on 0121 780 3333 or www.thsh.co.uk.
