Following on from the success of their last event in March when Farnham Sinfonia introduced young aspiring musicians to the audience this theme will continue at their October concert. The programme will include: • Barber – Adagio for Strings • Haydn – Violin Concerto in G, Jelena Horvat – soloist • Panufnik – Violin Concerto, Mira Marton – soloist • Chopin – Piano Concerto No.2 in F minor, Mischa Carr – soloist

Panufnik – Violin Concerto with soloist Mira Marton is an ex Yehudi Menuhin student. It was commissioned by and dedicated to Menuhin. Panufnik was a Polish composer who moved to England in the 60’s and spent much time in Farnham where he met his future wife. Mira is also Polish and is passionate about Panufnik’s music. Panufnik’s daughter, Roxanna composed the Coronation Odes for King Charles Coronation, so she something of a household name at the moment. Roxanna and Panufnik’s widow Lady Camilla, now 85, will be joining us. It is a superb piece, vibrant, dancey and energetic. The concert is being held at St Andrew’s Parish Church at 7.30pm and entrance is free with a retiring collection of £20 suggested. Refreshments will be available during the interval.
