Concerts in the West have announced their programme for 2020 with the number of concerts in Crewkerne being increased from seven to nine. As well as more classical music concerts in the town, further improvements are being made at The Dance House in North Street, where they are staged. John Bartholomew, who helps to organise them on behalf of Concerts in the West said: “We are delighted that the loyalty of our audience sees us rewarded with more concerts, a great compliment to the support we receive from the town and district. We continue to do everything we can to upgrade the experience, including improvements to the building. These should be apparent at the first concert of 2020 in January. We hope to see more and more people coming along and taking advantage of the real quality on show at every concert.”
The programme begins on Saturday January 18th at 7.30 pm with a concert featuring Andrew Marriner on clarinet, who is the son of the famous conductor Sir Neville Marriner. Andrew will be performing with Alasdair Beatson on piano and Michael Petrov on cello. This is a fund-raising tour on behalf of Concerts in the West. Tickets are on sale at the LIC in the town hall. Tickets cost £15, concessions are available and all members of the U3A will receive a £5 discount off of the full ticket price.
