Live music is back!
Bradley Creswick plays at Hexham Abbey on 25th June
Music is in the air again! We are delighted to announce a very special concert by Bradley Creswick, Leader Emeritus of the Royal Northern Sinfonia, at Hexham Abbey on Friday, 25th June. The concert starts at 7.30pm.
An immensely popular figure in this area, Bradley will be talking about his life in music and playing a wide-ranging programme of solo and chamber pieces by composers including Beethoven, Bartók and Telemann. He will be joined on stage by the violinist (and our chairman), Martin Hughes, and the flautist, Jill Hughes.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bradley to Hexham,” said Martin Hughes. “We have all missed live music so much and to be able to celebrate its return with such a wonderful musician is a real privilege.”
Advance booking is essential. Tickets on sale at Cogito Books, 5 St. Mary’s Chare, Hexham on 11th June. Price: £15. Payment by cash or by cheque made payable to ‘Hexham and District Music Society’.
Social distancing measures will apply at the concert.
Looking ahead, the society is now hard at work planning its 2021/2022 season. Highlights will include concerts by the rapidly rising Consone Quartet, currently members of the BBC’s New Generation Artists scheme, and the superb Sacconi Quartet, whose last Hexham concert immediately before the March 2020 lockdown was an extraordinary event. We will publish full details here as soon as we can. .
