'Bach to Bernstein' - Sennet Brass Ensemble - You will be taken on a journey through the ages. Arriving to the sounds of Bach, and with the help of hosepipes and a hand horn, you will go on a light-hearted trip through the history of western music with pieces by Vivaldi, Mozart, Elgar and Bernstein. Since its formation in 2002, the members of Sennet Brass have continued to work together, enjoying the opportunity to present high-quality performances within longstanding friendships. As freelance musicians, they have performed with many UK based orchestras, including the CBSO, Philharmonia, Orchestra of the Swan and the English Symphony Orchestra. Members can also be found hidden in theatre pits performing in shows, musicals and in pantomime at many venues around the Midlands.
In advance of the day, a concert programme pdf will be available at www.festiveclassics.co.uk for download
As the coronavirus pandemic caused all the 'Music at Lunchtime' events for 2020 to be cancelled,
we are reinstating the concerts for 2021 and a Risk Assessment has been undertaken to ensure the concerts are conducted in a safe manner.
Major safety points are:
- Socially-distanced seating for the audience will be laid out.
- Doors will be open at each end of the hall to ensure air is flowing.
- Lunches and/or drinks will not be provided, as social distancing at tables would be impractical. *
- To avoid personal contact, tickets will only be available in advance, and not on the door.
Concert programmes will be available by download before each concert, but not at Avoncroft.
Avoncroft is hoping to be able to open the adjacent Tea Room to sell tea, coffee and light snacks.
