LONDON MOZART PLAYERS AT ST JOHN’S CHURCH, UPPER NORWOOD
The LMP’s 2018 got off to a wonderful start thanks to a series of spine-tingling concerts with violin virtuoso Nicola Benedetti under the baton of Leonard Elschenbroich.
We were delighted to have full houses for each concert, and audiences and players alike were entranced by Benedetti’s exceptional musical talent.
Thanks to our sponsors for enabling us to host one of these concerts at St John’s in Upper Norwood, where we were able to invite young people and local community groups, as well as those of limited means who rarely get to hear such world class classical music.
Perhaps the concert is best summed up by a letter we received from a member of the audience at St John’s:
‘Nicola Benedetti was an absolute joy to hear – so inspiring to watch and listen to. Our ten-year-olds were, in their words, ‘speechless!’. There is little I can add to their feelings after their first concert – it doesn’t get any better than this.
Also a huge ‘Thank you’ to Nicola for meeting the girls, signing their programmes and having a photo with them. I can’t even begin to explain how excited they were to meet Nicola – a memory which will stay with them forever and hopefully inspire them in their playing.’
We were delighted that so many young people came and enjoyed the performance. (Source: London Mozart Players)
