18 November 2017: Inaugural concert of the Whiteknights Ensemble

players

Earlier this year some of my musical friends and I got together to form the Whiteknights Ensemble, and our inaugural concert is now only three weeks away! We’ll be performing as a wind quintet and the programme comprises works by Mozart, Ligeti, Cambini, Nielsen and Patterson.

Based in Earley, Reading, the Whiteknights Ensemble takes its name from Whiteknights Park, the manorial land of the De Erleigh family, now the campus of the University of Reading.

Full details can be found on our website here. The concert will take place at 7.30pm in St Paul’s Church, Wokingham, and proceeds will be donated to Rosie’s Rainbow Fund, a local charity which supports sick and disabled children through art and music therapy.

It’s a very worthy cause and the tickets are only £5, so please come along and support us if you can!


Programme details as follows: 

W.A.Mozart – Overture: The Magic Flute

György Ligeti – Six Bagatelles

Giuseppe Cambini – Quintet No.2 in D minor

Carl Nielsen – Wind Quintet

Paul Patterson – Westerly Winds

And if this isn’t enough to tempt you, there’ll be wine and cake during the interval: a nice glass of vino and some home baking could be yours for a suggested donation of two quid – how can you say no? Tickets on the door or available in advance from ensemble members via info@whiteknightsensemble.org.uk.
