A talented violinist and the new president of a major musical association will be performing in Harborough on Sunday.
David Le Page’s Harborough Collective returns to Harborough Congregational Church for the first concert of its autumn season.
David will be performing his own arrangements of Chausson’s heartbreaking Poeme and Prokofiev’s hauntingly beautiful Five Melodies.
The Collective will also be joined at the afternoon concert by harpist Eleanor Turner as the soloist in Debussy’s elegant and evocative Danses Sacrees et Profane.
Jeff Buckley’s Grace and Summa by Arvo Part will also feature.
Other musicians taking part in the performance, which starts at 3pm, are violinist Catherine Leech, Lisanne Melchior on viola, Matthew Sharp on cello and Meherban Gillett on bass.
Formed by Harborough resident David in 2010, the Harborough Collective aims to draw on the talents of some of the UK’s most outstanding musicians to put on high-quality concerts for Harborough audiences.
David has recently been made president of the European String Teachers Association (ESTA), following in the footsteps of fanous musical names including Sir Yehudi Menuhin.
He took over the position from Tasmin Little at the ESTA International Conference Centre in Oxford at the end of August.
David said he now hopes to bring some of the work that Esta does, which includes masterclasses and workshops, to this area in order to benefit young musicians.
All children of school age can attend Sunday’s concert for free.
