Love is in the air this Spring with stunning county soprano Ellie Neate performing Songs of the Auvergne with the Gloucestershire Symphony Orchestra. The beautiful French folk songs, arranged by Joseph Canteloube, will feature in GSO’s concert on April 9 at 7.30pm in St Barnabas’ Church, Gloucester.
But there is also a topicality to the programme which features Finnish composer Sibelius’s famous Finlandia – written as a veiled protest again Russian censorship.
Tickets at £12, with under-18s free, can be obtained through Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.com/…/spring-concert-tickets…
The retiring collection is for award-winning charity Gloucestershire Bundles in Quedgeley, which provides young families, immigrants and refugees with essentials – from nappies, to pushchairs, to Easter/Christmas gifts.
