Matlock Music is to open its 50th anniversary season with a concert on Friday, September 27, at Highfields School, Matlock.

The first concert of the season is to be performed by by Eloisa-Fleur Thom, a prize-winning violinist in demand throughout the UK as a soloist and chamber musician.

A graduate of the Royal College of Music, she has played in major concert venues, including the Bridgewater Hall, Wigmore Hall, St. Martin’s in-the-Fields and King’s Place.

She plays on an historic Gagliano violin, made about 1780, which is kindly loaned by the Royal College.

Eloisa-Fleur is accompanied by the young pianist Mark Austin.

The programme will include works by Beethoven, Ravel, Brahms, Fritz Kreisler and Manuel de Falla.

The concert is in the Wheeldon Hall, Highfields School, Lumsdale, off the Chesterfield Road, Matlock, DE4 5NA, and will be starting at 7.30pm.

Tickets for the concert are available at the door before the concert at £10.

Under 18s, students and registered jobseekers pay half-price.

All seats are unreserved.

There is ample parking at the school.
