Christchurch Lunchtime Concerts in March 2016

Lunchtime Concerts at Christchurch

Following the success of the November lunchtime concerts at Christchurch, we are delighted to announce two new dates in March: Wednesday 2nd and Wednesday 16th.

About the Lunchtime Concerts

Christchurch free concertOne of the fantastic developments from last year’s ArtBeat programme has been a growing partnership between local artists, musicians and the Clarendon Park Community.

Christchurch hosted a number of classical music events at last year’s ArtBeat festival. These included performances from Leicester University student musicians led by Paul Jenkins. The concerts were enthusiastically received and there were requests for more midweek daytime concerts at a local venue.

As a result, Paul has arranged for different university musical societies to perform on Wednesday lunchtimes at Christchurch. The first of these were the two lunchtime concerts which took place last November. Performances included individual solo items and a Big Band performance to audiences of children from Avenue Primary School and local residents.

This year, two more concerts are planned for Wednesday 2nd and Wednesday 16th March 2016. Come along and enjoy performances from the University Chorus and Concert Band.

Two more concerts are planned for the 2 and 16 March 2016. Come along and enjoy performances from the University Chorus and Concert Bands.

Admission is FREE, each concert lasts just under an hour, stay for a coffee afterwards if you can.
