Active Arts Helix Ensemble
Doors 7pm show starts 7.30 - St Andrews Church

Helix Ensemble is returning to St Andrew’s Church for a concert of music by Haydn and Ravel, much of it inspired by dance music. Toby Purser, who conducted three years ago in Countesthorpe, will be our Musical Director for this concert, introducing Ravel’s Pavane and Tombeau de Couperin in between Haydn’s first and last symphonies. Haydn’s Symphony no. 104 is often called ‘The London’ having been composed during a very successful visit by Haydn to London in 1795 and you may have last heard it played by Helix Ensemble in Countesthorpe in 2011!
