A treat for guitar enthusiasts is coming to a church hall in Market Harborough this weekend.
The Vida Guitar Quartet are playing at Harborough Congregational Church on Sunday as part of the church’s Coffee Concert Series.
The quartet – which comprises Mark Ashford, Mark Eden, Helen Sanderson and Chris Stell – are more often seen in the big concert halls of London and in America, so this will be a treat for Harborough’s music aficionados.
The quartet has recently been on tour of the United States and Sweden and say they are delighted to be coming to play in Harborough particularly as band member Mr Ashford, who has appeared as a soloist with the Harborough Collective, lives locally.
They will be performing songs from their new album Rhaposdy, which was released earlier this year and has been greeted with positive reviews worldwide.
It centres around their own arrangement of George Gershwin’s famous Rhaposdy in Blue and also features the Playful Pizzicato from Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony and the English Dances by Northamptonshire composer Malcolm Arnold.
The concert starts at 3pm.
Tickets cost £9 or £11, but entry is free for anyone who is under 18.
Tickets can be reserved in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 07903 020 101.
The Coffee Concert Series is being organised by Harborough violinist David Le Page and his Harborough Collective stable.
