We’re very sorry but this concert has been postponed due to Tony Halstead seriously injuring his hand. Box office staff will be contacting ticket holders over the next few days. Please accept our apologies for any disappointment caused. 

Programme includes music by ECKLEBE, BUSH, COOKE, FRICKER & TOURNEMIRE  

Our weekend of wind music concludes with a celebration of the horn, inspired by the musical library of Britain’s foremost 20th century horn player, Dennis Brain.  

Following their recent CD release ‘From the library of Dennis Brain’, this is an opportunity to hear live in concert some of the lost gems featured on the CD by Stephen Stirling and Tony Halstead, two stars of the horn world. They are joined by Ensemble 360’s Naomi Atherton and guests who bring the afternoon to a joyful conclusion with treasured works from the horn repertoire. 

Music in the Round is looking for horn players of approx. Grade 8 standard to join in with a performance of BERLIOZ Roman Carnival Overture as the finale to this horn celebration.
Places are strictly limited for the massed horn rendition. Interested? Please contact Ellen before 24 August at ellen@musicintheround.co.uk
