PRESS RELEASE: LMP return to Fairfield Halls with new Sunday Afternoon Concerts

The London Mozart Players are delighted to be returning to Fairfield Halls in June with a brand new concert series, Music for a Sunday Afternoon: The London Mozart Players in the Community. Launching on 7th June with a programme of chamber music, members of the LMP chamber ensemble will have the pleasure of being joined by students from Trinity School whom they have been working with since March, for a side-by-side performance of the exuberant Mendelssohn String Octet. Also featuring will be the Chen Piano Trio, champions of the prestigious Pro Corda National Chamber Music Festival, the Senior Saxophone Ensemble and the Junior Brass Quintet.

‘This is the beginning of a very exciting series given by the LMP, performing in the heart of Croydon at the Fairfield Halls in three concerts for the whole family,’ says co-principal cellist and Community and Education administrator Julia Desbruslais. ‘It is a crucial part of our artistic policy to engage with and be relevant to the community where we perform and have our offices. These concerts give us the chance to perform alongside local people, in the wonderful Fairfield Halls for the whole community of Croydon.’

Be sure to arrive early on June 7th to be serenaded by students from Trinity School in the foyer, while you enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of cake from the cafe at Fairfield before the concert at 3.30pm.

Later in the season on 4th October, the orchestra will be opening its doors to all string players* from the local area, rusty or up to speed to play side/side in two pieces and enjoy listening to the LMP on sparkling form in” Autumn” from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and other popular pieces.

The final concert on 6th December will be a performance of Mozart’s Requiem, with the full orchestra of the LMP, joined by the Croydon Bach and Croydon Philharmonic choirs and any singers out there who would enjoy the opportunity to join with us.*
