Music for a New Year At 7.30 pm on Saturday, 12th January, Trinity Arts will present the first concert of 2019 with a performance by Four Square + One, a vocal ensemble with piano. It’s very much a home-grown event with all the participants having a strong connection to Trinity. FourSquare, sang their first gig here in the summer and include the sparkling young talents of Charlotte Rowan & Kyle Harrison-Pope. The foursome is completed by Sue Candler & Bob Ball, who, shall we say, have been around a little longer. The Plus One is pianist Francis Goodwin, an amazing young talent, presently studying for his second degree at the Royal Northern College of Music and who played here twice earlier in 2018. It’s an exciting combination (if I say so that shouldn’t!). When we were together in the summer, we enjoyed an awful lot of fun, and our declared aim is that everyone should have fun on the 12th. The music will be very far ranging with songs, songs from the shows, some opera, some exciting piano music and certainly some humour; there might even be some surprises.
To aid your enjoyment of the evening, there will be a bar available in the parish centre from 6.30 pm and again at the interval.
Proceeds from the event are in support of Trinity and in particular its music department. What finer cause can there be? So plan ahead, make a New Year’s resolution that you are going to enjoy yourself more in 2019 starting with FourSquare + One on 12th.
Tickets at £10 (under 21s free) are on sale this morning in the parish centre.
WW1 Multi Media Commemoration Success
Our WW1 multi media commemoration was a great success, with more than 300 people attending the main event on Saturday 10 November, experiencing a gallery of images and stories, live poetry readings with people dressed as WW1 soldiers, an extensive floral tribute, video reports, silhouettes, and original artwork.
Organiser Joy Aldred, of Trinity Arts, said that the event had become much bigger than anyone expected. “Thanks to media coverage, so many people got in touch with their families’ stories and their tales were amazing and so poignant.” Find out more
