Paying It Forward – Main Concert – March 9th 2024

This concert includes a variety of pieces in celebration of the work and influence of Charles Villiers Stanford who died on 29th March 1924. The works chosen represent composers from the 19th and 20th centuries who influenced Stanford e.g. Brahms & Sullivan plus a number of the composers that he influenced directly or indirectly.
We use the term ‘Paying It Forward’ as the current term for ‘to do something kind or useful for someone because someone else has done something kind or useful for you
We are delighted to have James Gilchrist, the celebrated English tenor joining us as well as the Southern Sinfonia with whom we have worked for many years.

A recent article in Pangbourne Magazine January 2024 highlights this concert.
