The Norwich based Academy of St Thomas celebrates its 200th performance on Saturday June 18th.
For this popular midsummer concert at Salle Church near Reepham, the Academy of St Thomas will be directed by the renowned British violinist Lorraine McAslan who will play Mozart’s Violin Concerto in G major and Rondo for violin and orchestra.
Regarded as one of the finest violinists of her generation, Lorraine has appeared with the Academy on many occasions since 1988. She has performed with many of Britain’s greatest orchestras and made regular BBC Radio3 and TV appearances. Initially trained in London with David Martin, Lorraine moved to New York at the age of 17 on the recommendation of Isaac Stern to study with Dorothy Delay at the Juilliard School. The rest of the programme comprises Holst’s St Paul’s Suite, Grieg Elegiac Melodies and the Holberg Suite.
The Academy of St Thomas founded in 1973 is recognised as one of the UK’s foremost ensembles of its kind, and attracts players from across Norfolk, along with loyal and enthusiastic audiences.
