    The Barbican Piano Trio (Maidment Building)

    The Barbican Piano Trio is regarded as one of the UK’s leading ensembles with a reputation for stimulating performances, breadth of repertoire and exceptional audience rapport. Shortly after it was formed, the Trio won the South East Arts Young Musicians’ Platform which led to concerts throughout the region and a recording contract with ASV.

    Two years later it won the Royal Overseas League Ensemble Prize and was selected for the Park Lane Group’s Young Artists and 20th Century Music Series. Within three years the Trio was broadcasting on BBC Radio 3 and the World Service as well as on TV and radio in Chicago, Boston, New York, Washington DC and in Bulgaria.

    The Trio performs regularly at London’s Wigmore Hall and their cycle of the complete Beethoven piano trios featured in the Master Concert Series, receiving stunning feedback.
    Please do come along and enjoy this spectacular Trio as they perform a delightful programme that will include works by Haydn, Fauré and Tchaikovsky.

    Kindly sponsored by Mary Allen

    Junior School Play 'DNA' by Dennis Kelly - Wednesday 24th, Thursday 25th and Friday 26th June (Ashton Theatre)

    “Apparently you’re clever…So. What do we do?”

    A group of teenagers gather in a wood. They have made a terrible mistake – a mistake which could destroy all of their futures. In panic, they decide to cover the whole thing up. But when the cover-up unites them and brings harmony to their otherwise fractious lives, where’s the incentive to put things right?

    Dennis Kelly’s savage black comedy, first performed at the National Theatre in 2007, is fast becoming a classic.

    “DNA is a brilliant play: it’s about friendship, acceptance, and the pressure to do the right thing. It explores how the dynamics of a friendship group can shift when something extraordinary happens. The characters are horribly real and recognisable; watching the play, I think it can make us all a little uncomfortable and maybe question what we would do in this situation. Would we behave any better?” – Helen Brown, Director of Drama

    The show will last one hour. There is no interval.

    Performances in the Ashton Theatre are at 6.30pm on Wednesday 24th and at 7.30pm on Thursday 25th and Friday 26th June.

    Tickets are free, available from Dawn Dunn in Reception: dldunn@shrewsbury.org.uk 01743 280500.
