Edmund Waller Orchestra and friends: Spring Concert

  • Children and Families
  • Live Music

Event Details

The incredible, unique Edmund Waller Orchestra will spread joy and harmony, performing John Sousa`s Liberty Bell, Bill Withers` Lean on Me and Mazel Tov, the Jewish Song meaning Good Luck!

There will be 2 alumni groups, a string chamber ensemble performing Elgar`s Chanson de Matin and a cello sextet which will perform an arrangement of Vivaldi`s double cello concerto.

A rich musical evening drawing from musical traditions across the globe; Liberty Bell is the iconic symbol of American Independence, Bill Withers one of the finest Black American song writers, Elgar perhaps the most famous English composers and Vivaldi, an artist steeped in the 17th century Italian Catholic Baroque tradition.

Doors open into the Narthex at 6.45 pm where there will be a bar and snacks
