The Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds will host three lunchtime concerts starting this month.

“Showcasing local talent playing well-known pieces of classical music, the concerts will make for a refreshingly musical lunch break,” say the venue.

Violinist Rosie Lowdell and cellist Rebecca Welham will open the series, performing at 1.10pm on Monday September 18.

“The talented duo will present a virtuosic programme of music by Beethoven, Hofmann and also some of their own works,” say promoters.

Then, on Monday October 9 The Goldcrest Trio - Duke Dobing (flute), Miriam Keogh (harp) and Raphael Hurwitz (viola) – will perform.

“These outstanding musicians will give a programme of beautiful and inspiring music by Debussy, Ravel, Ibert and Piazzolla,” say promoters.

Finally, on Monday November 13, Martenot Waves - Malcolm Ball (Ondes Martenot) and Peter Humphreys (piano) – will play live.

Tickets for the concerts, priced at £8.50 each, are available now and include tea, coffee and cakes afterwards.
