A charity orchestra concert will take place in Morpeth this spring
Three members of the orchestra are GPs – conductor Dave Tomson, soloist Jonathan Caudle and conductor Anna Hatch.
The performance will take place on Saturday May 14 and will include Mozart’s popular overture to Don Giovanni, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2 and Swedish-Finnish composer Crussell’s Clarinet Concerto No. 2.
It will take place at St James’s Church in Morpeth at 7.30pm and tickets cost £10 (students and children free). They are available from Morpeth Chantry.
The soloist, Jonathan Caudle, is recognized in the region as a recognized clarinetist.
Originally from Wylam, Jonathan studied medicine at the University of Leicester and worked in Australia and South Africa before returning to the North East where he is a member of the New Tyneside and Bewick orchestras, as well as performing with the European Doctors Orchestra and North Wind.
The concert’s conductor will be long-time orchestra member Dave Tomson.
Playing from an early age, Dave switched from clarinet to oboe but also plays English horn and saxophone. Like soloist Jonathan, he is also a member of North Wind and the European Doctors Orchestra.
