Andrew Wilson & Elizabeth Holman Première "À La Ronde" Glenorchy Church Wednesday 4 April 2018

Andrew Wilson & Elizabeth Holman
Glenorchy United Reformed Church Exmouth
Wednesday 4 April 12.30pm
The Lunchtime Concert at Glenorchy Church on 4th April will feature the premier of Andrew Wilson's composition for violin and piano called “À La Ronde” The artists will be Elizabeth Holman (violin) and Andrew Wilson (piano).

Andrew wrote À La Ronde for Elizabeth's wedding to Ian last summer in Truro Cathedral and it was presented to her on that occasion. The piece is inspired by the whimsical National Trust house of the same name, which is just outside Exmouth.

There are many reflections of the famous polygonal building in the music, which pictures in sound the wonder the visitor has on first casting their eyes around the astonishing decorative panels made of shells and other materials collected by the original occupants - unmarried cousins Jane and Mary Parminter.

It is appropriate that the premier should take place in Glenorchy Church as Jane and Mary Parminter, for whom À La Ronde was built by John Lowder in 1796, were worshippers there before building their own chapel at Point in View in 1813.

The Concert starts at 12.30 and will feature other music as well.
