The Auden Theatre, on the grounds of Gresham’s School, Holt, will be continuing its impressive Subscription concerts this year.
Pianist Angela Hewitt will be performing Bach classics on Wednesday February 5 at 8pm.
She will be joined by Julia Schröder on violin and Andrea Oliva on flute.
The trio will perform the all-Bach programme a few days later at Wigmore Hall, London.
Angela Hewitt was named artist of the year at the 2006 Gramophone Awards and has performed with the London Philharmonic and BBC Scottish Symphony orchestras.
A week later, on Wednesday February 12, the European Union Chamber Orchestra with their flamboyant leader Hans-Peter Hofmann and oboist Arco van Zon will return to the theatre for the third time.
The musicians will work with string players and the choir from the Holt school.
The concert, which starts at 8pm, will include Haydn’s Little Organ Mass, Elgar and Vivaldi.
