The fourth public appearance by the Gore Chamber Ensemble will be made this Sunday at St Andrew’s Church, Devon St, Gore at 3.30pm.

The group was formed last year to provide chamber orchestra training and to gain performance experience to intermediate and advanced abilities.

Conductor director Suzanne Noel-Bentley said their aim was to provide concerts of music from the baroque and classical eras.

“We will be covering a huge range of composers, including music by Bach, Haydn, Telemann, Marais, Rameau and several other baroque composers,” Mrs Noel-Bentley said.

“This year the group includes players from the age of 9 through to 18, as well as several accomplished adult players.”

There were some wonderful musicians, she said.

A Marais piece is to be played by the Sutton family – Jared (18), John (16) and 12-year-old Hannah.

“Throughout the concert there will be numbers played by the smaller ensembles as well as the whole group,” Mrs Noel-Bentley said.

“I have seen the group mature and develop over the last year and a-half.

“Not only their technical skills, also their ability to make music together.”

It is an afternoon’s entertainment that is ideal for the whole family, Mrs Noel-Bentley said.

“As well as wanting to inspire the kids, these days many people who love classical music don’t get the opportunity to hear performances to a high standard here in Gore.

“I want it to be affordable, and all we ask for is a gold coin donation.”
