The St Ceciliatide Festival (Artistic Director: Past Master Noel Osborne) presents the Stationers' annual Sunday concert, performed by outstanding musicians.
St CECILIA, the patron saint of music and musicians, has been celebrated at Stationers' Hall since at least 1692, when Henry Purcell's second Ode 'Hail, Bright Cecilia' received its world première here in the Hall. In previous years, the concert has sold out, so early booking is advised.
SCHUBERT: Piano Trio in B flat (D898)
GERSHWIN: Porgy and Bess Suite (arr. Bateman)
This attractive programme features two ever-popular composers: Schubert’s Trio is typically lyrical and melodic. Old Stationer, Paul Bateman — celebrated pianist, conductor and orchestrator — has arranged George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess Suite, containing some of the most popular songs of the 20th century.
The concert will be preceded by a Fizz Reception and followed by a Buffet Lunch with Wine.
