The Trumpet Shall Sound! An evening with virtuoso John Barker
Date(s) - 15/09/2018
6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Main Street, Caldecote,
Join us for an evening’s entertainment with one of Britain’s finest trumpeters, John Barker. His mixture of anecdote and musical performance has been described as ‘spell-binding’, as he draws on a varied repertoire ranging from classical (Schubert’s ‘Ave Maria’) to film tracks (‘Gabriel’s Oboe’ from The Mission), and from ballads (‘Over the Rainbow’) to traditional church music (‘Jerusalem’).
Author Jilly Cooper wrote after attending a concert: ‘You play quite beautifully with great accuracy and empathy, a lovely sound and huge tingle factor’.
More about the performer
John has worked professionally as a solo trumpet player for 33 years performing in a wide variety of venues including Kensington Palace, the Albert Hall and the ICC in Birmingham. With 11 solo albums to his name, his recordings are often played on BBC Radio 2 and he played on the soundtrack for the hit film The Full Monty with Stocksbridge Brass Band. He has a wide performing experience, from live TV to weddings, and has worked with artists including Dina Carroll and Jimmy James & the Vagabonds.
As well as a great evening’s entertainment, tickets include a free glass of wine or juice and homemade savoury snacks during the interval. A selection of John Barker’s CDs will be on sale.
