Lunchtime concert series returns

Piano

Due to popular demand the lunchtime organ and chamber concert series is returning to Huddersfield and Dewsbury Town Halls with a fantastically talented line-up.

Robert Sharpe – 19 October, 1pm
Huddersfield Town Hall

The Director of Music at York Minster makes a welcome return with a programme including the famous Ricercare in six voices which Bach wrote on a theme given to him by Frederick the Great, and, a first for Huddersfield, Paul Spicer’s exciting and colourful Kiwi Fireworks.

Regular lunchtime concert goers have commented on how wonderfully friendly, safe and sociable these daytime events are, and with competitively priced lunches available from 11.30am, it’s a perfect opportunity for you to enjoy a bite to eat before sitting back and enjoying the musical programmes on offer.

George King – 21 October, 12:30pm
Dewsbury Town Hall

George King is unique amongst British pianists in that he is recognised as a classical concert pianist but is also an internationally admired jazz pianist. This will be his fifth appearance in the series and he really is back by public demand.

There will certainly be fireworks in Chopin and Liszt and the usual King invention in an improvisation on a popular melody.

George King and friends – 2 November, 1pm
Huddersfield Town Hall

If you can’t make the 21 October in Dewsbury dont worry! You have a second chance to see George King  performing works for piano and organ by César Franck and Philip Moore. Gordon Stewart will also be joining George, taking themes from solo organ pieces and developing them in his own unique way – a concert not to be missed!

The programme includes Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in G minor, Franck’s Prelude, Fugue and Variation and Philip Moore’s Prelude, Adagio and Toccata.
