Festival Finale

Sunday afternoon concert by Trinity Music Academy
4pm Sunday 7th July: free entry, no tickets required!

This is our third concert from Trinity. These concerts are a fine Sunday-afternoon experience that bring our Festival to a close. These outstandingly gifted teenage musicians will perform a challenging and eclectic program. This year they bring large scale late romantic works, such as the Rachmaninov 2nd Piano Sonata and Elgar Violin Sonata together with Mozart’s 2nd piano sonata, which is itself a dazzling example of the shining gift of the teenage Mozart. Trinity’s carefully constructed program interleaves these instrumental works with two mini-song recitals. These contrast the worlds of German, French and English Art Songs and round off the hour with the arrival of 2 zany ladies from New York.

A special pleasure of these “Trinity Concerts” is that over the years the audience is rewarded with an insight into the development of these young musicians as their individual musical personalities evolve from year to year. Above all, it is a final opportunity for both audience and performers to enjoy our fine Steinway piano in the wonderful acoustics of our ancient church in a relaxed way. This end of Festival occasion will be completed with generous refreshments, kindly provided by the church, when performers and audience can mingle together, and look forward to 2020.
