German Chamber orchestra to perform

A German orchestra will be performing in Morpeth next week.

Morpeth Music Society will welcome the Kammerphilharmonie Europa on Thursday, March 17, at 7.30pm, at Morpeth Methodist Church.

The orchestra, based in Frechen in North Rhine-Westphalia, tours widely around Europe, calling upon different performers at different times.

A dozen musicians will play six pieces, including two concertos — one for trumpet by Johann Nepomuk Hummel and one for violin by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Entrance is free for those aged 18 or under. Adult tickets, priced £14, can be bought from Morpeth Tourist Information Centre, by calling 01670 513369 or on the door.
