Lunchtime Concerts – February


February 5th : “Pieces of Eight” This is a group of singers, nominally eight of them, from St. David’s Singers in Exeter. Their conductor is Mark Perry. They will probably sing a wide range of music all unaccompanied – what is properly called A Capella.

February 12th : Angela Ashwin (cello) with Audrey Williams (piano) Angela is part of String Theory string quartet who will have played for us on 29 th January, so both Angela and Audrey have been to us before. Until very recently Audrey was the Organist and Director of Music at Withycombe Parish Church.

February 19th : Peter King (organ) This is a first visit for us. Peter was Director of Music at Bath Abbey until retiring and coming to live in Exeter. He is currently President of Exeter
& District Organists’ Association and very high up in the English organ world. He now performs regularly at various venues in Devon and further afield. He is a brilliant organist and I think we are lucky to have someone coming of his calibre.

February 26th – Annabel Rooney (cello) and Josephine Pickering (piano) Both have been to us before and if you’ve heard Annabel you’ll know she is a brilliant cellist producing a big tone. Annabel is the daughter of our own Ian and Josephine McLaughlan and lives in Exeter.
