Haddenham Community Infant School PTA proudly presents Picnic Proms in the Heart of Haddenham featuring 'Masquerade' on Friday 19th June in Haddenham Village Hall.
The doors open at 7.30pm and the concert starts at 8.00pm. Tickets are £10 per person, available from Haddenham Community Infant school, Blooming Fruity and Haddenham Community Library.
Please bring your own picnic. A bar will be available.
There will also be an exciting auction with amazing prizes including signed Russell Watson memorabilia, a gliding lesson, sledging for four at Sno-zone, two tickets for an Oxford United home game, a large framed Damian Ward landscape photograph, and a Lee Yates canvas.
Masquerade String Quartet is an amalgamation of four of the country's leading classical musicians: violinists Simon Chalk and Liz Hodson, violist Mark Chivers and cellist Nick Stringfellow.
They perform a clever mixture of light Classical and Jazz/Film 'crossover' concerts as seen in their current 'Up Close and Personal' Tour with Russell Watson.
Liz and Mark are married and live in Haddenham with their two small sons, one of whom attends the Community Infant School. Liz is a leading Baroque Violinist who works with the National Symphony Orchestra, and you may know her from running her 'Musical Tots' group in the village. Mark is Principal Viola for many eminent Crossover /Pop Artists (Katherine Jenkins to Katie Melua) and will be also doing a talk to members of Haddenham Screen about his work on the Oscar nominated soundtrack of 'The Theory Of Everything' in June. Their close friends, Simon works as a worldwide conductor for Il Divo, and Nick is the cellist of the Villiers String Quartet, resident at Oxford University.
It promises to be a spectacular evening. Please come along and support one of your local schools.
