Lunchtime Concerts return to Theatre Royal...

Popular Lunchtime Concerts return to Theatre Royal Stage to brighten up Bury St Edmunds’ Lunch Hours

 

The Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is once again welcoming the ever-popular series of Lunchtime Concerts to its stage this Spring to inject a little harmony into locals’ lunchtimes.

 

Having run for many years (always with the generous support and sponsorship of Gross & Co), and in various venues, the ever-popular Lunchtime Concerts will once again be held in the auditorium of the Theatre Royal.

 

First to grace the stage is Christine Stevenson, international piano recitalist and concerto soloist, who will be taking her audience on a journey through the musical connections between Schuman, Chopin, Liszt and Debussy with precision and panache. Stevenson will also be dipping into the world of the Nocturne, so be sure to catch this magical musical lunchtime interlude on 24 February.

 

In March the concerts draw closer to home, as Benjamin Britten’s niece discusses the memoirs of her mother – “My Brother Benjamin” on 31 March. Written by Britten’s younger sister Beth, the memoirs are a wonderful portrait of their shared Lowestoft upbringing. After this thrilling insight into the life and family of one of our finest composers, Britten’s 3rd Cello Suite will be performed by the ex-LSO cellist Nick Cooper. Be sure to bring your copy of My Brother Benjamin with you, as there will also be a book signing by Britten’s niece, Sally after the concert.

 

14 April sees the husband and wife duo David Gough (guitar) and Danielle Perrett (harp) come together for a programme of popular toe-tapping classics for all the family to enjoy. Known for his TV and film scores, (including the soundtrack of Persuasion) David Gough will play alongside his wife Danielle who is a leading period and concert harpist bringing some nimble finger-work to the stage.

 

And for those disappointed by the soggy sandwich lurking in their lunchbox there will be complimentary tea, coffee and cakes available after each concert to really make your lunch hour a special occasion!

 

Tickets all £8 or book all three concerts for only £20.
