posted in: Uncategorized | 0

On Tuesday March 22nd at 1pm, in St Edmund’s Church, Southwold, the Southwold Music Trust presents a lunchtime concert ushering in the joys of spring – and hopefully putting a long, hard winter behind us all!

Distinguished baritone Robert Gildon and Southwold-based pianist Nathan Williamson present songs by Schubert, Handel, Ivor Gurney, and Gerald Finzi’s ‘Let us Garlands Bring’, which sets some of Shakespeare’s best-loved texts.

Robert Gildon enjoys a renowned and colourful career treading the boards of the world’s leading opera houses and concert halls. Resident in Walpole, he is a regular guest at Snape Maltings where he is also a Britten-Pears Community Ambassador.

The concert will begin at 1pm and will last just under an hour. As well as performing to a live audience the concert will be streamed live via Facebook live, YouTube, and into local care homes. The artists will present a special concert to the children of Southwold Primary School earlier the same morning.

If you wish to attend the concert in person please purchase a ticket in advance – we would prefer not to have to sell tickets on the door if at all possible. Tickets can be booked by phone on 0333 666 3366 or online at www.ticketsource.co.uk/southwoldconcertseries. All tickets are £15. Seating will be on a first come first served basis, and the southern aisles of the church will be allocated for those who wish to socially distance.

This event is part of several concerts which the Southwold Music Trust has been able to present during the dark days of the recent pandemic. We are extremely grateful to our many sponsors who have supported us and our audiences through this difficult time, including the Southwold Trust, Paisley Charitable Trust, and a number of individual private sponsors.
