Music for Awhile and Margaret Faultless to perform baroque concert
Chamber musician Margaret Faultless and ensemble Music for Awhile are to join young Herefordshire musicians in a baroque concert on Wednesday 19 October at St John’s Methodist Church in Hereford.
This concert promises a rich selection of music by JS Bach and members of his family. The programme offers a variety from solos to a smaller scale 18th century chamber music performed by soloists from Music for Awhile, who will be working alongside young musicians from Herefordshire for some of the concert programme.
Music for Awhile was founded in 1996 by Simon Whistler and Margaret Faultless, and the ensemble continues to inspire audiences and performers today.
Margaret Faultless performs music from Monteverdi to the present day, but is best known as an interpreter of 18th century repertoire and specialist in historical performance practice. She is co-leader of The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and regularly directs the orchestra in performances and live broadcasts.
The evening is sponsored by The Cecil King Memorial Foundation, with all proceeds going to support the fabric of St John’s Methodist Church.
The concert starts at 7pm and tickets are available for £10 on the door or from Herefordshire Historic Churches Trust. Entry is free to under 18s.
Hereford Cathedral School Director of Music Mr David Evans said: “We are delighted that Margaret and her colleagues will be working with our young musicians, we feel very privileged to have such an opportunity.”
