2023-24 Season – Our 6th and final concert of the Season Concert,  at Theatre by the Lake on June 12th 7.30pm – Songs of Summer Love – A Wild Arts Opera Evening, with music selected and arranged by Orlando Jopling and story and direction by James Hurley.

A truly operatic extravaganza:  Leonora and her long-term partner, Taddeo, are throwing a party. But when Isabella arrives with Leonora’s secret former lover (the charismatic Lindoro) in tow, relationships are strained to the limit. Follow and feel for the two couples through their simmering complications, desperate tensions, parties, jealousies, longings for love, compromising revelations, mistaken identities, and final acceptance of reality, accompanied by a wonderful selection of the most romantic operatic arias. Perfect for a Summer Evening.

2023-24 Season – 5th Concert  St. John’s Church April 13th 7.30pm. The Pirasti Piano Trio with an intriguing programme: music by Rebecca Clarke (1886-1979) Trio, Paul Schoenfield (b.1947) Café Music and Johannes Brahms Piano Trio No 1.

2023-24 Season – 4th Concert   Charlotte Spruitt, violin, and Angus Webster, piano, St. John’s Church Saturday February 24th.    With sonatas by Mozart, César Franck, Beethoven and Debussy this was a big concert, with beautiful, sensitive and dramatic interpretations by these brilliant young musicians.

2023-24 Season – 3rd concert    Dame Imogen Cooper, piano St. John’s Church Saturday January 13th 2024

Imogen Cooper’s concert was attended by one of the largest audiences of recent years, and she lived magnificently up to all expectations as one of the most distinguished and cherished pianists of our time.  Her programme with music by Schubert, Bach, Thomas Adès and Beethoven took us on a fascinating musical journey and it was a joy to hear the Society’s piano at its best in the acoustics of St. John’s.
