Outstanding trumpeter Tracey Redfern performs with Northern Chamber Orchestra in Buxton

The Northern Chamber Orchestra return to Buxton in November with trumpeter Tracey Redfern following critically acclaimed performances at Buxton International Festival.

Tracey Redfern, the NCO’s principal trumpet, has won many prizes and plaudits for her playing throughout her career, including reaching the finals of the BBC Young Musician competition in 1994. She now performs regularly with the NCO, as well as Manchester Camerata, Hallé Orchestra and Psappha. During this programme, she takes on Jeremiah Clarke’s Trumpet Voluntary together with a lively Torelli concerto. Also on the programme are English string favourites by Elgar and Holst and Massenet’s gorgeous Last sleep of the virgin, from the oratorio La Viege. The concert is bookended by Handel’s great B minor concerto grosso and Mozart’s brilliant divertimento, composed at the age of 16.

The performance takes place at the stunning St John’s Church in Buxton and is the first performance in Buxton since the NCO players accompanied the operas Georgiana and Eugene Onegin at Buxton International Festival. Previous NCO concerts in Buxton have featured guest soloists of the highest calibre, including pianist Freddy Kempf and violinist Chloe Hanslip.

Tickets are available now from the Northern Chamber Orchestra website. Tickets start at £12, and are free for students and under 18s, from
