CRISPIAN Steele-Perkins has been dazzling audiences throughout the world with his virtuoso trumpet playing for many years, and has a stellar international reputation.  Edington Arts is delighted that he will be giving a concert at the Priory Church, Edington, on Saturday 7th October, at 7.30pm.

Along with his top notch accompanist Ian LeGrice who will play the church’s Harrison & Harrison organ, he will present a mixed programme of classical and contemporary music, from Mozart, Handel and Haydn through to Howard Goodall and Bert Bacharach.

He will also be demonstrating the techniques used to perform the famous trumpet tunes of the 17th and 18th centuries, when the instrument was very different from the modern valved trumpet.

Tickets are £20 front nave, £15 rear nave and £10 sides; 18 and under come free, but if you buy on the door on the night, please add £2 per ticket.  They are available by phoning 01380 831256 or emailing sue@edingtonarts.org; full programme information, and news of future concerts, can be found on the Edington Arts website, www.edingtonarts.org.
