The Clitheroe Concerts’ Summer Concert is set to welcome one of the country's most prestigious wind groups this year, with the London-based Thorne Trio bringing their movingly tuneful sounds to the Ribble Valley.

Formed in 1999 and comprising of graduates from the Royal College of Music, The Thorne Trio will be playing a programme starting with Handel’s ‘Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’ before moving on to Mozart and Bach at the CCS's summer concert, which will take place at the Ribble Valley Civic Suite on Church Street on 6th June at 7:30pm.

Having played individually with most of the major British and Irish orchestras, The Thorne Trio have also played at concerts and locations all over the UK including at Buckingham Palace, St. James’ Palace, Lambeth Palace, the Houses of Parliament, Greys Inn, and at national art galleries.

Bringing the audience forward in time, the group will move on from Bach to the music of Gordon Jacob, Edward Elgar, and Richard Walthew, before continuing the theme with some George Jean Pfeiffer, Darius Milhaud, and Benjamin Britten, ending with the group’s own commission ‘Century Dances’ from contemporary British composer Cecilia McDowell.

The evening will also start with a very brief AGM of the Society, a registered charity. While there are no tickets necessary for the show, a donation towards expenses would be appreciated.
