An Ely oboist is one of four soloists performing at Norfolk Symphony Orchestra’s annual summer concert.

Oboist, pianist, and arts administrator James Fletcher will be part of the concert at St. Nicholas’ Chapel, King’s Lynn, on Sunday June 24.

He was awarded a scholarship to study oboe at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in 2013 where he trained with Melinda Maxwell, and on baroque oboe with Gail Hennessy.

James then studied with Karel Schoofs at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels in 2015.

To conclude their 2017/2018 season the orchestra is bringing an afternoon of light-hearted music to the chapel, and also an opportunity for the audience to meet with the players and musical director Phillip Hesketh.

The concert, which starts at 3.30pm, will feature works by Mozart and Dvořák.

Four of the orchestra’s principal wind players will take centre stage as soloists in Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for Four Winds: James Fletcher, oboe; Karen Verrechia, clarinet; Sylvia Newton, bassoon and Martin Childs, French horn.

Tickets, on the door or via the box office on 01553 764864, are free for those in the ‘Friends of the NSO’ Scheme, and £10 for the public. Admission for under 18s is free.
