Includes a glass of German wine and slice of...... Strudel?
What a great start for the New Year! and a warm welcome to our guests, the Shrewsbury Concert Band returns with their Conductor Ken Lumley.
They will entertain us with a variety of music with a German flavour complemented during the interval with a glass of Rhine or Moselle wine and, hopefully, a slice of Strudel.
The program includes Bach’s Toccata in D. Although some still think it was not written by Bach, it remains boisterously popular.
Not to be outdone by controversy, having publicly declared Victor Hugo’s play ‘Ruy Blas’ as "detestable", Mendelssohn refused to write an overture and a song for it. Piqued by stories that he was unable to write them in the time available, he relented and wrote this overture in three days.
Festivities would not be complete without Handel’s Water Music, and more music from one of our favourite Bands.
