Ely Sinfonia to perform symphonies of Beethoven and Strauss at Ely Cathedral concert


One of Beethoven’s greatest symphonies will be performed at Ely Cathedral on Saturday, May 9.

His Eroica symphony is the centrepiece of a concert of music from composers of the ‘romantic’ period.

The concert, presented by Ely Sinfonia with conductor Steve Bingham, also features Johann Strauss’s Overture to Die Fledermaus and Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto no 1, played by young violinist Edward Tomanek.

He passed his grade 8 when still only six years old and now, aged 13, holds a scholarship at Kings College School, Cambridge.

Tickets cost £22.50/£17.50 (reserved) and £7.50 (unreserved). Concessionary tickets are £12.
