The penultimate concert of Alnwick Music Society’s subscription series takes place at Alnwick Playhouse on Tuesday with the visit of the Kammer-Philharmonie Europa.

The orchestra is highly-regarded and its outstanding artistic level has been confirmed by the press and critics alike at more than 70 concerts across Europe.

In Cologne, Leonid Tritus founded and assembled a group of 60 young instrumentalists from 18 European countries. In a series of concerts throughout the UK, ten of them perform a programme at each venue.

Alnwick has been selected as one of these.

The majority of the players for the programme come from Poland and Germany, but also included is a young Japanese virtuoso.

The players are all in their late teens and early twenties and the Alnwick ensemble includes violins, violas, cellos, harpsichord and trumpet.

The programme is both varied and familiar with the occasional less well-known piece. It includes Vivaldi’s Concerto for Violin No.4 in A minor, Ponchielli’s Concerto in F major for Trumpet and Grieg’s Holberg Suite Op.40.

The concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets for non-members are available from the Playhouse box office (01665 510785) or online at, priced £14, £13 conc.

Students in full-time education go free.
