Kew Sinfonia – 5th October 2019

Beauty and cruelty in nature. Tuneful birds and deadly spiders. Soloist Eleanor Turner weaves a charming web in Patterson’s concerto for harp and strings. Respighi brings baroque imitations of bird song to today’s chamber orchestra and Roussel’s ballet music gives insects very human emotions with a surprising twist (spoiler alert). Mozart of course transcends all these earthly concerns.

Please donate jumpers, warm hats, scarves & gloves to give away. (Collection point at the back of church). If you are interested specifically in acting as a ‘host’, lunching with and mingling with our guests on the day, (or generally helping), please contact Tina Ruygrok by email on or by phone on 0208 940 8960.
