Milverton Concert Society March update

Friday 31 March 2023 at 7.30pm
St Michael’s Church, Milverton

Following on from the exquisite performance by saxophonist Jess Gillam in February, Milverton Concert Society will be welcoming pianist Lara Melda on 31 March at St Michael’s Church in Milverton. As our regular concert goers will know, all of our performers are at the top of their profession and have that extra special something which make the concerts memorable.

Lara is no exception. She won the BBC Young Musician competition in 2010 at the age of 16, performing Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 2 in the final round with Vasily Petrenko and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Cardiff. She made her Wigmore Hall debut in 2017 and followed this with three more sold out recitals there in 2018, 2019 and 2021

She has won exceptional praise for her Chopin interpretations and at Milverton she will be performing Chopin’s sublime Nocturne in Bb minor and Sonata No3, as well as works by Beethoven, Liszt, Poulenc and Brahms. Have a look at Milverton Concert Society and click on to the clip of her performing at the Wigmore Hall….and please book early. Our concerts are often sold out.
