Event Description

Orchestra Pro Anima’s twice-yearly concerts at Christ Church continue to be popular. There are clear references to Christmas in this concert: in Corelli’s most famous work, his colourful and perennially loved ‘Christmas Concerto’; in a most tranquil interlude in Handel’s Messiah; and in an orchestral version of the timeless Christmas carol ‘O Holy Night’.

The celebrated clarinettist Robert Plane joins the Orchestra in the first half in a performance of Mozart’s utterly sublime Clarinet Concerto; Michael Bochmann is the soloist in the second half in Saint-Saëns’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, the former part plaintive, the latter dazzlingly virtuosic; and this will be followed by a string orchestra version of Borodin’s rhapsodic and deeply nostalgic Nocturne.

Tickets: £20 and £15 (students half-price and free entry for children aged 10 and under) – available from Malvern Tourist Information Centre on 01684 892289 and in person, and from The Courtyard, Hereford on 01432 340555, in person and online
