'The Romantic Era' - The Orchestra of St John Trio - Alastair Moseley (piano), Charlotte Moseley (violin) and Tim Stidwill (horn) will perform various works from the romantic repertoire, starting with the Franz Strauss Fantasy on waltzes by Schubert - a solo with lovely rubato passages, technical difficulties and a dramatic end. This will be followed by three violin solos - two by Elgar and Wieniawski's technically-challenging Scherzo Tarantelle. The concert will end with the wonderful Brahms Horn Trio, full of passion and outbursts of drama.
In advance of the day, a concert programme pdf will be available at www.festiveclassics.co.uk for download but not at Avoncroft

Avoncroft is hoping to be able to open the adjacent Tea Room to sell tea, coffee and light snacks.
As the coronavirus pandemic caused all the 'Music at Lunchtime' events for 2020 to be cancelled,
we are reinstating the concerts for 2021 and a Risk Assessment has been undertaken to ensure the concerts are conducted in a safe manner.
Major safety points are:
- Socially-distanced seating for the audience will be laid out.
- Doors will be open at each end of the hall to ensure air is flowing.
- Lunches and/or drinks will not be provided, as social distancing at tables would be impractical. *
- To avoid personal contact, tickets will only be available in advance, and not on the door.
Concert programmes will be available by download before each concert, but not at Avoncroft.
