WORLD RENOWNED MUSIC ENSEMBLE TO PLAY AT MACDONALD LEEMING HOUSE, ULLSWATER ON MAY 12TH
The internationally-renowned Locrian Ensemble brought ‘Classics by Candlelight’ to Leeming House as a fundraiser for Annie Mawson’s Sunbeams Music Trust. The prestigious soirée evening, which took place on May 12th at the award winning Macdonald Leeming House Hotel, featured the music of Mozart, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Handel, Schubert and Bach amongst others. The Locrians wore evocative period costumes, and within the candlelight setting, the evening blended gourmet food and virtuoso musicianship amongst stunning surroundings.
The Locrian Ensemble are top classical musicians working in London, and have such a busy and varied schedule that they are considered one of the most dynamic groups working in the field of British classical music today.
The Locrian Ensemble are frequently heard on television and on film. Recent recordings include the score for Oscar Wilde’s Fairy Stories in Dublin, as well as Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter film scores. They have also notably supplied the music for popular television series such as “My Uncle Silas”, “Stig of the Dump”, “Animal Hospital” and “Judge John Deed”.
Grahame Devine, General Manager at Leeming, has chosen to support the charity having taken a keen interest in the work that the Trust does in promoting awareness of and integration amongst deprived and disabled communities in Cumbria. Grahame and the Macdonald family are proud to be supporting such an important and vital cause in improving the lives of children, adults and families with severe physical and/or learning disabilities and mental health problems.
“The Locrians have a formidable international reputation”
“The Locrians were spirited and sensitive; ensemble and balance were precise; the result was utter pleasure”
