Aquinas Piano Trio to perform in Kelly College's series of concerts
ALTHOUGH music-lover and benefactor Bryan Foster sadly died last month, his memory lives on through the various recitals which are sponsored by the Foster Charitable Trust.
The next event to benefit will be the visit from the Aquinas Piano Trio on Wednesday, February 13 to the Melvin Hall, Kelly College, part of the college's on-going Music Society series.
No strangers to the area, the trio was launched in 2009 and has quickly become one of the county's most sought-after ensembles.
The players are established solo and ensemble artists in their own right and, between them, have amassed an impressive array of awards and achievements, as well as performing in London's Wigmore Hall, South Bank Centre, Barbican Hall, and the Bridgewater in Manchester.

The Kelly programme opens with Mozart's Trio in B flat, K 502, followed by Saint-Saens's charming First Piano Trio in F – its equally interesting, yet also less-frequently-performed sister-work in E minor can incidentally be heard on the trio's highly-acclaimed debut CD.
The Aquinas Trio – Ruth Rogers (violin), Katherine Jenkinson (cello) and Martin Cousin (piano) – return to more familiar territory for their closing work, Mendelssohn's dynamic Trio No 2 in C minor.
Complimentary coffee is served during the interval, and there is disabled access and adequate free parking.
The concert begins at 7.45pm.
A service of thanksgiving for Bryan Foster will be held at All Saints Church, Sparkwell, in April, where it is hoped that the Endellion Quartet will be in attendance.
THE next artists to appear in the Newton Abbot and District Society of Arts series are Pure Brass, on Friday, February 15.
This award-winning brass quintet is a vibrant and well-established ensemble formed in 2006 at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD), and initially emerged as a prominent force in Scotland's chamber-music scene.
Pure Brass became the first brass quintet in over ten years to be accepted on the Tillett Trust's Young Artist Programme, and has won a number of prestigious competitions since. With an avowed passion for new music, the quintet premiered works at the Sounds New, and Glasgow Festivals, gave a sell-out recital of contemporary music at the RSAMD, and are also highly involved in education and working with young people of all ages.
Their Newton Abbot programme opens with Lutoslawski's Mini Overture, and includes works by Farnaby, Gabrieli, Bach, and Irving Berlin's Puttin' On The Ritz.
The venue is the town's Courtenay Centre at 7.30pm
