Violin Concert

Kevin Saw, a talented young violinist currently studying at Wells Cathedral School will be performing a fundraising concert at The Bishop’s Palace at 6pm on 10th February to raise funds for an audition tour in the USA. Kevin is desperate to pursue his life-long ambition to study at one of the great music schools in the USA and is planning to audition at Mannes, Manhattan School of Music, Colburn and Eastman. Unfortunately audition tours like this are hugely costly and to this end Kevin is undergoing a series of fundraising events. The concert on 10th February will include violin pieces from a range of composers such as Bach, Vivaldi, Paganini, Prokofiev and Shostakovich and will showcase the huge technical demands made of a talented violinist hoping to become a top soloist! The concert will also include the First Movement of the Brahms Piano Quintet in F Minor, in which Kevin will be joined by fellow talented musicians from the school. Tickets will be £10 each and available in advance from the shop, or on the door.
