The soloist in the Beethoven Piano Concerto No4 in G major on the 2020 Halloween night concert in the Routh Hall will be George Rowley.
I have known George since the time of my own arrival in Kidderminster in 2011(George hails from Kidderminster) and, as most of my career has been involved with either spotting or developing talented musicians, I can promise you all a real treat.
Thank you to the members of our audience who have allowed us to use their concert observations.
"The performance of the conductor and players was excellent.... one of the best concerts my wife and I have ever attended."
"It is amazing to be able to hear an orchestra of this calibre on our own doorstep."
"Concertmaster (Leader) Shulah Oliver was an awesome solo violinist in Bach's Fourth Brandenburg Concerto......"
"The standard of live musicianship was truly fabulous and equal to anything we have heard in Symphony Hall Birmingham" ~Amanda and Jim Sullivan
"Annette Jackson has many musical gifts but two impressed me most. Firstly as a conductor, she does not get in the way of the performance for her movements are never distracting. Also, she directs entire concerts from her memory. No wonder Antal Dorati decided to help her at the beginning of her conducting career!"
"Superb performance. What an utter pleasure and delight to be able to enjoy a cultural experience of this standard in a local venue. I would normally have to travel to Birmingham's Symphony Hall to experience a performance of this calibre. Top quality and entirely to my taste"
