Description

Wells Cathedral School Woodwind and Strings Promenade Concert on Wednesday, 26 January from 19:00-20:00.

Woodwind and Strings Promenade Concert: 'Winds and Strings Rejoice'

The Woodwind and String Departments celebrate the diversity of their ensemble repertoire in this return to the traditional January promenade concerts. Both departments will present the very best of their work so far this year along with some special collaborative items between strings and winds. Including works by Dvorak and Francaix.

Each year, in early January, the chairs are removed from the Nave of Wells Cathedral. This allows the congregation and visitors to appreciate the medieval Nave in its original state – without furniture

During the annual Promenade Concerts, the audience can therefore walk around and enjoy not just the space in the Nave, but also the Quire, transepts and side chapels. Some choose to wander the building, whereas others will find a special and unique place to sit where they can enjoy the performance.

Please note: wearing of face coverings is mandatory at all times in the Cathedral unless you are exempt. The Cathedral advises that everyone completes a lateral flow test before attending.

Tickets cost £10.54
