HORSHAM MUSIC CIRCLE 77TH SEASON - 2018-2019
Season 2018/2019 T H E M O S T L O C A L S E A S O N
The Horsham connection runs through all our concerts this season when we celebrate the many talents of those either influenced by former local musicians or the music makers working here with us today. All these outstanding professionals look forward to playing in their home surroundings and we are delighted they are appearing in our concert series. Their diverse programmes will both inspire and entertain!
Two names associated with the Circle in its earlier years were the distinguished cellists Melissa Phelps and Robert Cohen and opening our season we have one of their pupils, Kristiana Ignatjeva from Latvia, with her Estonian pianist Sten Heinoja. These rising stars are presented by The Countess of Munster Musical Trust Recital scheme. In complete contrast we welcome a versatile new trio Manouche Etcetera with repertoire including everything from fiery gypsy dances to curious klezmer and retro swing with another home-grown talent, violinist, Alex Thomas from Horsham.

Next year has been designated Horsham’s Year of Culture. The Music Circle’s contribution sees a return visit by the critically acclaimed pianist Jeremy Young ‘a player of natural ebullience, he was stylish all evening’, and for the Music Circle’s 77th anniversary concert we have drawn together some of our busiest musicians, involved with performance and education, to form a chamber ensemble. The Sharpenhurst Quartet, named after the ‘peak’ that overlooks Christ’s Hospital which is well known as a rural landmark in that area, will be joined by harpist Heather Wrighton and clarinettist Steve Dummer.
We complement the subscription series with the popular free Lunchtime Concerts plus a special fund-raising New Year celebration - watch the press and our brand new website for details at www.horsham-music-circle.org.uk.
Do come and join us to experience the rewards of hearing live music performance.
