Description: encore is delighted to be hosting their annual Sumer Concert for a second year at Danny House, an impressive Grade I listed Elizabethan red brick mansion. It lies at the northern foot of Wolstonbury Hill and may be regarded as one of the finest stately houses in Sussex. The present house was built 1593–95 by George Goring, on the site of an older house. It is set in eight acres of gardens at the foot of the South Downs within historic parkland of 400 acres, which was granted by royal charter in 1333.

This intimate concert in the Great Hall will bring together the award-winning Brighton Youth Orchestra (BYO) String Ensemble and ex-BYO player, pianist Ashley Beauchamp.  All proceeds will go to encore, the charitable organisation supporting young musicians across Brighton & Hove.

The Programme

Ashley will play two solos: Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde by Wagner (arranged by Franz Liszt) and Morgen! from 4 Songs by Strauss.  He will also be performing Eclogue for Piano and Strings by Finzi with the String Ensemble.  

BYO leader Freya Stewart with Rama Suphadet will play the very famous 'Bach Double Violin Concerto'. Amelia Callard will play ‘Lament' by Peter Copley, a well-known Brighton composer whose carols were recently performed and broadcast by the BBC Singers. Peter is himself a past member of BYO. The programme will also feature a solo by Conrad Burton, the ensemble’s Bass player.
