St.Mary's Church, South Creake Fakenham, Norfolk

Haydn Andante and Variations in F Minor, Hob.XVII:6, Un piccolo divertimento
Rowland-Jones An Elegy for William Birtles
Schubert Piano Sonata in G major, D. 894

We welcome back Tim Horton to South Creake for this very special concert dedicated to the memory of our great friend and supporter, William Birtles who died on 13th January 2020. Patricia Hewitt asked Simon Rowland-Jones to compose an Elegy in Bill’s honour and this will be the first time the work is heard in public. The concert concludes with Schubert’s monumental and uplifting late Sonata in G.

TICKETS £20 (£12 of each ticket sold will be donated to Barts Hospital)

Immediately following there will be refreshments for the Friends of NNMF in the Festival Marquee, assuming there are no Covid restrictions in place that might prevent this from happening.

This concert and post-concert refreshments are generously supported by Patricia Hewitt and Alex Birtles.
