This Sunday residents of Sherborne (and beyond) are in for a treat. The Wessex Strings will be performing a benefit concert in support of Money for Madagascar. The line –up is exciting:
Their conductor is a Venezuelan cellist who has performed in many prestigious venues all over the world, including in the Royal Festival Hall in London. The programme includes a Mozart piano concerto. The soloist, also originally from Venezuela, was a prize-winner at the Royal College of Music and in a number of international competitions. She has also performed with the celebrated Simon Bolivar Youth Symphony Orchestra.
Tea with home-made cake is included in the ticket price and some wonderful crafts from Madagascar will be on sale. This promises to be a wonderful evening in aid of a good cause.
Do come if you are anywhere in the area!
