Friends - Launching our 2017/18 Season

I'm delighted to announce that we have once again secured a world-class line-up for our 5th season of Friends of Holy Trinity Parish Church.

 

During the past 4 years, avid Friends supporters and concert-goers will be well aware that it has always been our commitment to showcase the best of regional and national talent and that we have always pushed the boundaries to ensure a programme which is popular and diverse.

 

This year will be no different. Folk has been a particular highlight for the past 2 years and we have secured a nationally-known Radio 2 Folk Award winner - Jack Rutter.

 

We also welcome back the acoustic duo 'The Night Watch' for our season kick-off on Saturday 16th September.  They'll be performing music from the 12th to 17th centuries using a variety of authentic period instruments.

 

A genuine highlight of the season will be The British Police Symphony Orchestra.  It really is an honour and privilege to have them perform in Sutton Coldfield which will really be a milestone occasion.

 

For the first time, we will have a dedicated Gilbert & Sullivan evening supported by the acclaimed Birmingham Savoyards and telling the story of the composers themselves interspersed with music from all of G&S's 14 masterpieces.

 

Fret & Fiddle bring Jazz to Holy Trinity - a first for this genre within the Friends' programme.

 

Our finale for season 5 will be Louise Jordan's narration with music about the part some inspirational women played in the First World War - particularly poignant in the anniversary year of the end of that war.

 

So, there you have it.  What are you waiting for?

 

Tickets for all events are now available via this website.

 

If you like what you've heard, why not think about a fantastic value season ticket - just £60 per adult for all of the above.  Hurry - this is only available until the 15th September!
