This was the last BWE concert directed by our longstanding director of music, Shea Lolin.  Details of the programme are described in our 'past events' page. For the first time we played at St James Church, Clerkenwell which proved to be a very congenial venue.

We welcomed back Margaret Moore to be the narrator in Martin Ellerby's Sinfonia Aqua. This was a work that we commissioned in 2015 when Margaret was the origianl narrator in the first performance. In the same piece, Helen Russell took on the role of percussionist to play the tubular bells and foghorn.

At very short notice, the concert had been delayed a week because the Covid virus got to our MD in an untimely way. Sadly this meant that some of our players who had attended the rehearsals were not available. Some good friends of Shea and BWE joined in to make the concert a success including Alex Maden, Adele Gordon, Bethany Pearson and Anthony Bailey.
