As you may remember earlier in the year we reported that Cellist Yalda Davis is endeavouring to play her cello in 439 Medieval country churches across Suffolk to raise funds for the SHCT alongside the Churches Conservation Trust and the Suffolk Wildlife Trust. Well her journey continues this Winter with this trio of concerts:
Sunday 5th November, 3.30pm. Bradfield St Clare church.
Informal afternoon concert (30 mins); Bach cello suite in C minor. Free entry, donations to church funds.
Sunday 5th November, 6pm. Liston church (near Long Melford).
Performance of Bach cello suite in C minor during Compline. Free entry.
Sunday 17th December, 2.45pm. Hitcham church.
Performance of Handel Trio Sonata for 2 cellos and keyboard before the carol service (3pm). With Will Bass (cello) and John Wilkin (piano).
This video gives a flavour of what to expect:
