REVIEW: Southbank Sinfonia stars wow crowds at Merriott Church
10:48am Thursday 22nd August 2013 in What's On
VALIDO, a string quartet from Southbank Sinfonia, entertained and enthralled a near full church of more than 130 music lovers from Merriott and beyond.
Joseph Fisher, of Merriott, again brought an extremely talented group of musicians to the church to perform works by Hayden, Puccini and Mendlessohn, with The Mendelssohn String Quartet No.2 Op13 beautifully performed by the musicians.
The Valido String Quartet, all members of the touring Southbank Sinfonia in London, loved the performance ambience of the church and the appreciative and enthusiastic audience.
The concert raised more than £400 to meet the piano restoration fund target and more than £200 for the Lychgate repair.
Further concerts are on the cards to raise repair funds. Date for the diary – Friday, December 20, for an evening of Carols and Classics at All Saints Church, Merriott, with more London based musicians.
