The first classical music concert series at Kingshill House took place last Saturday (8 October), with Kemble-based musicians Annabel Knight and Robin Bigwood, appearing as Passacaglia Duo.
This first concert of the series was a great success and saw new visitors to Kingshill House – an arts centre nestled in a residential area of Dursley. The House, which was once used as the Stroud Council office, now hosts a range of activities; from creative workshops, weekly wellbeing classes, to larger scale events such as Diwali in Dursley which is taking place at the end of the month.
Joe Dymond, General Manager at Kingshill House explained: “What we’re trying to do with our new series of classical music concerts is to bring a high-level of musicianship to the area and at a reasonable price too. We want to make our events accessible to as many people as we can.”
The next classical music concert is titled Fantasy to Flamenco and it will be an evening with award winning Italian classical guitarist Renata Arlotti. Arlotti will be performing an intimate solo concert with music from Bach, Dowland, Granados, Ravel, Morittu and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. Renata currently lives in London and is Professor of Guitar at the London Performing Academy of Music.
The concert starts at 7.30pm on Saturday, November 12th, and costs £12.50 for general admission. The final concert in the current series is ending with the Carducci string quartet on December 3rd.
