Edington Arts confirms first concert of 2021

Story posted on

WITH the roadmap now unfolding according to plan, Edington Arts is confident that the first concert of their 2021 season, on Saturday June 12th starting at 7.30pm in Edington Priory Church, will go ahead.  

Organisers say, “The excellent international brass quintet Fine Arts Brass will be performing a lively and varied programme of works written or arranged for brass quintet, (two trumpets, French horn, trombone and tuba).  

“Works included are by Bach, Piazzolla, Malcom Arnold, de Falla, Rossini and songs from the 1920s.  It will be a joyous evening of actual live music in performance – a first venture back to normal musical life.

“However, while a wonderful evening’s music is in store, Covid regulations will mean it will happen rather differently from usual. Seating in the Priory Church will be socially distanced, meaning that audience numbers, even after the next phase of relaxations on May 17th, are likely to be very constrained, and that tickets will be allocated to specific seats. 

“If you would like to come as a group of up to four people, please arrange for a single transaction so that seats may be allocated appropriately. 

“All tickets will need to be paid for and will be issued in advance; regrettably there can be no walk-ups on the day, and even worse, there will be no bar in the interval!

“Should there be a glitch in proceedings, Edington Arts will need contact details to communicate any changes of plan as well as fulfilling test and trace requirements, so please be prepared to give your details when you order your tickets. Please either ring Chrissy on 01380 831256 or email sue@edingtonarts.org.  

“Edington Arts recommends that you buy your tickets as soon as possible (£20/15/10 as usual with 18 and under free).  If demand is heavy, a waiting list will be in operation.”

Full programme information will be at www.edingtonarts.org as soon as it is confirmed.
