Shrewsbury School

Darwin Festival Valentine's Day Concert at St Alkmund's Church, Shrewsbury

Thursday 14 February 2019 at 19:30


An evening of words and music celebrating Charles and Emma Darwin, performed by the Musicians of Shrewsbury School.

Far from being someone who saw no value in the power of music, Charles Darwin was fascinated by its very existence - and even more so, its effect on human beings, both physical and emotional.

His wife Emma was an accomplished musician, and his children enjoyed their music-making as well. Charles himself loved attending concerts, and our programme will reflect some of the composers with whom he most associated his love of music.

Mozart – Kegelstatt Trio
Beethoven – Trio for Clarinet, Cello and Piano
Beethoven – An die ferne Geliebte
Chopin – Polonaise in Ab Major
Beethoven – Piano Sonata No. 8 in C minor (Pathétique) Movt III – Rondo
Plus works for harp, voice, bassoon and strings

FREE admission, tickets on the door.
Please join us from 7.00pm for a pre-concert welcome drink

This concert takes place in St Alkmund's Church and is part of the DarwIN Shrewsbury Festival 2019.
