Leamington Editorial 8th Feb, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

ENSEMBLE 360 perform a double bill at Leamington’s Spa Centre on Sunday (February 14).

They 11-strong ensemble perform a family concert at 11.30am of Paul Rissmann’s new work Sir Scallywag and the Battle of Stinky Bottom aimed at three to seven year-olds.

Leamington Music Festival Director Richard Phillips said: “With songs to sing and an opportunity to meet the musicians, this is an ideal way of introducing the young to the joys of concert-going. The humour in Paul Rissmann’s writing also means it’s not just for children.”

And in the afternoon at 3pm they play a Music in the Round concert featuring Shubert’s Trout Quintet and the Octet in F.

Before the afternoon concert there will be a discussion with Ensemble 360 about Schubert’s chamber music, starting at 2.10pm.

Madness and Tormet is the programme title for a Leamington Music promoted concert at Warwick’s St Mary’s Church

on Tuesday (February 16).

The concert – featuring soprano Bethany Symour, Pamela Thorby on recorder and Peter Seymour on harpsichord –

will feature sonatas for recorder by Handel and Telemann and vocal works by the English composers Blow, Purcell and Humfry.
