Sam Baker will be returning to St Nicholas' church on Saturday 28th October, this time with his newly formed ensemble, the Stella Maris Trio.
The concert, entitled "Sacred and Secular", will contain a wide range of music from the 16th to the 20th centuries. In addition to accompanying soprano Victoria Armillotta and mezzo soprano Iryna Ilnytska, Sam will be playing both piano and organ solo pieces — from Bach to Debussy. Many of you who have attended Sam's previous concerts will greatly appreciate the inclusion of these solo items.
Victoria and Iryna will be singing some very familiar and much-loved pieces such as César Franck's "Panis Angelicus" and "Voi che sapete" from Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro, so please make a note of the date and get your tickets online here or from:
Caroline Saker (01844 291825)
Tickets are £12 each; under-16s free.
There will be refreshments and canapés during the interval and all proceeds will be going to the Motor Neurone Disease Association; the concert itself is being dedicated to Sarah Hayward, Caroline Saker's sister, who sadly died of the disease earlier this year.
