Calendar of Concerts  2012-2013

These are the forthcoming concerts for the 2012-13 season, all concerts taking place in the Market Hall in Appleby and starting at 7:30pm.  If you'd like your own copy of the concert dates, as a nice poster to print off and put on your notice board at home, click HERE.   You might also like to help us by printing one or two off and displaying them in a suitably prominent position in your community - that would be greatly appreciated.


  • Five evenings of musical loveliness to look forward to...      
    3 more new names and 2 firm favourites return for 2012-13.  We scour the four corners of the musical world (some may argue that there are, indeed, five corners, but we remain unconvinced) to bring you new artists for our season of concerts but also enjoy the chance to re-invite previous performers and this year is no exception.
  • Sunday 30th September 2012  - Sophia Lisovskaya - piano.  A programme of music by Mozart, Chopin and Tchaikovsky by this dynamic young Russian pianist, who is carving a name for herself on the international music stage.
  • Sunday 11th November 2012 - The Barbirolli Quartet.  Dynamic, crisp adventurous, the Barbirolli Quartet were described by The Times as "forthright, full-blooded musicians, afraid of nothing" and have recently completed a tour of the major European cities' concert halls.  No need to fly to Vienna tonight to hear them at their best.
  • Sunday 20th January 2013 - Northern Sinfonia Principals.   This evening's concert will be by the Principals drawn from the wind section of Northern Sinfonia, one of the finest chamber orchestras in their own right.  There's always a palpable sense of family amongst their players on any day of the week, but bring some of their star players into the limelight and the resulting, intuitive musical chemistry is wonderful to behold.
  •  Sunday 10th March 2013 - Frambuesas.   This is a harp, violin, viola, cello and piano quintet with a dual identity. Formed by full-time members of The Halle Orchestra, their fascinating versatility is revealed when the harp is cast aside and its replacement injects a whole new character which carries a whiff of salt air from the Rio de Plata.
  • Sunday 14th April 2013 - Methera.  If you didn't catch them when they made their Appleby debut 2 years ago, make a note in your diary for their return visit.  Spirited, original, fresh and completely engaging.  Four randomly applicable adjectives out of a duffel bag-full to choose from.

NOTE:  Programme information is often garnered well ahead of a concert and sometimes, as we all know, the best laid plans of mice and men oft gang agley...and so, whilst given in good faith, programmes sometimes do change for a variety of reasons.  If we have prior knowledge, we shall use this website to communicate any such change but the organisers are not able to accept liability for said change if it occurs.
