Nothing is certain in life but death, taxes and the evolution of great music. Join us for a concert that will transport you through some of music’s most iconic moments from Bach to Kate Bush.  

Our journey begins 400 years ago in the Baroque era when Bach ruled the music scene. His music has proved timeless, permeating everything from film scores to technology. Take his Badinerie; you might not recognise the name, but you may well know the tune from its stint as Nokia’s catchy ringtone… 

Fast forward a few decades and we end up with Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto. Mozart, ever the visionary, composed this piece for an instrument that hadn’t fully developed yet, showcasing his belief in its future potential. 

After making some stops in the 19th century with some Elgar and Coleridge-Taylor, we land in the 20th century to wrap things up with some toe-tapping Piazzolla and a strings arrangement of Kate Bush’s 80s hit And Dream of Sheep.

This concert has been designed to include the set works of the 2025 GCSE music syllabus, making it ideal for students preparing for their exams.
