Programme notes by Chris Darwin
Strings Attached is very pleased to have been accepted by the scheme of CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust which encourages young people to attend chamber music concerts.
Through CAVATINA, and with the co-operation and support of Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, we are able to offer a limited number of advance FREE tickets to young people for our chamber music Coffee Concerts. See Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival website.
If you happen to be older than 25 do please, of course, make this very generous offer known to your younger friends and relatives!
Strings Attached aims to promote, develop and help publicise high quality chamber music in the Brighton & Hove area; we encourage and support both professional and amateur chamber music making. We are a voluntary group, working in co-operation with a range of organisations including Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival.
The initial impetus for Strings Attached came in 2010 from the possible collapse of the much-loved Sunday morning ‘Coffee Concerts’ at The Old Market in Hove. These happily survived for a further year at St Nicholas Church on Sunday afternoons into 2011.
The Sunday morning Coffee Concerts, organised by colleagues at Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival, are the regular highlight of our musical calendar. The format of these concerts includes an opportunity to meet fellow members of the audience in the interval when complimentary sherry or fruit juice is provided exclusively to Friends of Strings Attached by Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival. There is often an opportunity to meet the performers at the end of the concerts.
Strings Attached is a new society aiming to bring quality chamber music to Brighton and Hove, and it certainly fulfilled this in its inaugural concert by the Chilingirian Quartet at the Corn Exchange.
