Special ‘gala concert’ with violinist Viktoria Mullova and family
We’re really excited and delighted to invite you to a special gala concert on Sunday 12th May. Without doubt one of the finest soloists of her generation, the violinist Viktoria Mullova has offered to perform a concert for CRAG with her family, (husband, Matthew Barley – cello, son, Misha Mullov’Abbado – bass, and daughter-in-law, Bridget O’Donnell – violin) all of whom are brilliant internationally-recognised performers.
Viktoria Mullova studied at the Central Music School of Moscow and the Moscow Conservatoire. Her extraordinary talent captured international attention when she won first prize at the 1980 Sibelius Competition in Helsinki and the Gold Medal at the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1982 which was followed, in 1983, by her dramatic and much publicised defection to the West. She has since appeared with most of the world’s greatest orchestras and conductors and at the major international festivals.
The early evening concert will last approximately 90 minutes and will be followed by a Prosecco and canapé reception. The event will be held at the Memorial Hall. Tickets (including the reception) are priced at £30 (£12 for under 16s) and you can buy them here from 4th March.
Since all the concert expenses are covered by a generous grant from The Evenlode Foundation, we are able to give every single penny of the ticket sales directly to our partner charities.
