Join us for an exciting afternoon of music to celebrate our return to Bishop’s Stortford.  The afternoon will begin with Coleridge Taylor’s Bamboula, an exciting dance with a long heritage that can still be found in the music of New Orleans. It pairs beautifully with Dvorak’s New World Symphony, a masterpiece partially inspired by the cultural music of the Native and African Americans that Dvorak studied while living in New York.  In-between we briefly return across the pond to Elgar’s incomparable cello concerto.  Our soloist, Sophie Kauer, recently featured in the film TÁR, starring Cate Blanchett, in which Sophie performed the Elgar Cello Concerto live, and we are thrilled to have her join us for this concert.
