MUSIC lovers can enjoy a series of lunchtime concerts being held as part of Bromsgrove Festival.

The four concerts are being held at The Guesten Hall of Avoncroft Museum, in Stoke Heath.

The Music at Lunchtime events feature an hour of music at noon, following by a light lunch and glass of wine in the hall from 1pm.

The first concert is being held today, June 18, from noon where the Beorma Vocal Quintet will be celebrating the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth with Elizabethan songs.

The following Wednesday, June 25, the popular Dante String Quartet - which includes cellist and conductor Richard Jenkinson - will be bringing Haydn and Schubert’s little Quartettsatz.

Bromsgrove clarinettist Alastair Moseley, with his daughter Charlotte who plays violin in the Virr String Quartet, will be performing two popular quintets written by Mozart and Weber, at the concert on July 2.

The last of the series, on Wednesday, July 9, features a performance from the Miniature Concert Band. The band, consisting of only two players Hannah Talbot-Cooper and David Shaw, includes music from Bach to Bolero, from Latin music to military marches, as well as music marking the centenary of the beginning of the First World War.

An individual event costs £10.50, or £38 for all four concerts.
