CLASSIC CONCERTS: Salisbury Cathedral music director composes piece for Rickmansworth musical performance

The director of music at Salisbury Cathedral has composed a new classical piece especially for a concert in Rickmansworth.

David Halls, who’s organ music soothed those queueing the world-famous cathedral to get their COVID vaccinations, is set to perform at a special concert organised by Three Rivers Music Society (TRMS) to bring people back to live classical music.

An accomplished pianist, he’ll be performing with his cellist brother, Steven Halls, who is also a retired chief executive at Three Rivers District Council. Rounding out their trio is sought after orchestra leader Daphne Moody, who will be playing the violin.

Together they’ll be playing music from Vivaldi, Antonin Dvořák and Frank Bridge, the last of whom David has written a special piece in tribute to, mimicking the style of the English composer’s ‘mini-compositions’ for his violin students.

The concert will be held at Rickmansworth Baptist Church on the High Street, on March 9. It will start at 3pm with a pre-concert talk a quarter of an hour before. Tickets are £16 on the door, with free entry for those under the age of 25 and reduced prices for members.
