A Country Night at Nashville comes to the Grand Theatre

Tomorrow night, there’s ‘Britain’s best-loved classical touring ensemble’ the Locrian with their tribute to composer Antonio Vivaldi.

A spokesman said: “Dressed in lavish period costume with a stunning classical set, these charismatic musicians perform Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, a composition which depicts 17th Century Italian rural life in a wonderfully inventive manner.

“Step back from the hectic pace of our anxious times, into the elegance and grace of the Baroque, whilst listening to harmonies of this melodic genius weaving his magical spell.”
