Audiences are invited to a Sunday afternoon of classical music performed live from the Wesley Centre in the Yorkshire market town, Malton.
Trilogy, an ensemble of flute, harp and viola, promise to transport listeners for a perfect Sunday afternoon of entertainment.
Thanks to a major grant from the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund for heritage, the Wesley Centre now benefits from the installation of a multi-camera digital TV system, which is able to produce broadcast-quality live streamed events.
The repertoire includes the romance of Claude Debussy, the Late Romantic French composer acclaimed by critics for bringing “a new kind of beauty into the world”, and engineering a “velvet revolution.”
The livestream event is open to all and will take place on The Wesley Centre YouTube page on Sunday 13 June at 3pm. To set an event reminder, go to: https://youtu.be/AJCCmEB36qI
A ‘pay as you feel’ concert, audience members are asked to kindly donate to support the young musicians before, during, or after the concert here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/trilogy-ensemble-livestream-tickets-153955026629
Royal College of Music and Guildhall School of Music alumni, Trilogy is quickly making a name for themselves in the classical music world. Individually, they have performed with the London Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and the BBC Philharmonic.
All in their early twenties, flute player Amy-Jayne Milton has been described as ‘one of the top players of her generation’ by Sir James Galway. Harpist Bethan Griffiths was awarded a First-Class Honours Degree from the Royal College of Music in 2017 where she was the 2016 recipient of the RCM Harp Prize; she recently gained her Master of Performance degree. Violist Henrietta Hill has a Masters in Performance at the Guildhall School of Music, where she won various awards.
Paul Emberley, Project Lead at the Wesley Centre, said: “Trilogy made their debut at the Wesley Centre just before the pandemic hit. We’re thrilled to be welcoming them back, and to provide a platform for young and exciting talent. It’s also a chance to show off the incredible acoustics of the Wesley Centre, and build our profile as a go-to concert venue.”
The Wesley Centre is a historic and iconic landmark in the heart of Malton of national importance, as the oldest surviving Reverend William Jenkins-designed chapel in Britain. The building is undergoing a major transformation into a new community-hub with café, and vibrant state-of-the-art 550-seater concert venue.
Before Covid, the centre hosted major names from the classical music world, including Julian Lloyd Webber and Lesley Garret.
Trilogy will also perform pieces by the composer Arnold Bax, evoking the English countryside, and an exquisite toe-tapping Latin journey to South America with Miguel Del Aguila’s magical ‘Submerged’.
The event is accessible to all, and will be professionally filmed and live streamed via the Wesley Centre YouTube channel. Listeners just need to click on the link to access the concert in real-time.
