The magnificent Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony at St John’s Church, Bromsgrove
Orchestra of St John: Beethoven’s mighty 9th Symphony fills the superb acoustic space and historic surroundings of St John’s Church, Bromsgrove, together with Elgar’s soul-searching violin concerto, in which rising star Charlotte Moseley takes the solo spot.
We are delighted to be joined by the OSJ Chorus, and the choir will include members of the Worcester Festival Choral Society. A superb line up of soloists Claire Prewer – soprano, Jane Stevenson – mezzo, Wilhelm Theunissen – tenor, David Coulson – bass; completes this powerful programme under the baton of conductor, Richard Jenkinson. “There can be no better place to spread Beethoven’s anthem of joy for mankind than the sublime setting of St Johns Church. This concert also celebrates Worcestershire’s favourite son, Edward Elgar, in the county that meant so much to him.”
We do hope you can join us for this wonderful occasion, which aims to raise funds for vital building work at the Orchestra’s home church of St John’s Bromsgrove by Friends of St John’s Church.
Join us for this great occasion. Supported by MSG Solicitors.
