2017 Autumn Concert

Sat 21st Oct

AUTUMN CONCERT

at KENDAL TOWN HALL 7.30pm

Elgar described how on the evening of 21 October 1898, after a tiring day’s teaching, he sat down at the piano. A melody he played caught the attention of his wife, and he began to improvise variations on it in styles which reflected the character of some of his friends. These improvisations, expanded and orchestrated, became the Enigma Variations.

Incredibly, 119 years later to the day, Kendal Concert band played “Nimrod” to an appreciative audience on a wet Autumnal evening. And the bar was open!
