A perfect programme for a Summer afternoon in the wonderful acoustics of St Nicholas Chapel showcasing Harp, Flute and Trumpet. We are delighted to welcome back the superb harpist, Alexander Rider, who has performed within the orchestra many times. Alex will be joined by Anna Hopkins, our principal flute, for the Mozart concerto.
Iain Laing then joins us to perform Haydn's ever popular trumpet concerto.
Following an interlude from the NSO wind section, our Season is brought to a close with Alex returning to the stage to perform with the orchestra the utterly beautiful
Morceau de Concert.
Steve started conducting Norfolk Symphony Orchestra in Autumn 2019 with our Magic and Mystery concert.
Steve studied violin with Emmanuel Hurwitz, Sidney Griller and the Amadeus Quartet at the Royal Academy of Music from 1981 to 1985, where he won prizes for orchestral leading and string quartet playing. In 1985 he formed the Bingham String Quartet, an ensemble which has become one of the foremost in the UK, with an enviable reputation for both classical and contemporary repertoire. The Quartet has recorded numerous CDs and has worked for radio and television both in the UK and as far afield as Australia. The Quartet has worked with distinguished musicians such as Jack Brymer, Raphael Wallfisch, Michael Collins and David Campbell. Steve has conducted amateur and student orchestras and ensembles for many years.
