To mark the centenary of World War One, pianist Alex Wilson will perform a musical tribute to composers whose lives were cut tragically short during the Great War at his latest concert to be held in the Mint Methodist Church, Exeter on October 18th at 7.30pm. Profits from the concert will be donated to the British Red Cross.
The concert, entitled The Banks of Green Willow, features much loved favourites by Ravel, Bridge and Ivor Gurney, a new work by James Whittle and a series of rarely heard miniatures by composers all killed in action.
With spring finally pushing through the last remnants of winter, St Paul’s Church in Honiton is set to play host to a Spring Violin Recital on Wednesday 19th March at 7.30pm.
The event, sponsored by Gilbert Stephens Solicitors, will feature Devon violinist Marie Langrishe. Marie is 19 and lives near Honiton. She started learning the violin aged 7, and continued musical studies whilst studying at Maynard School in Exeter, where she led both the school orchestras and the school quartet for a number of years.
Martin has performed regularly across Europe, the Far East, Australasia and South Africa. Recent and future engagements include appearances with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Hallé, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the Munich Symphony Orchestra, as well as recital performances at the Bridgewater Hall, Musée d’Orsay and Wigmore Hall.
