German music ensemble will return to north-east
German music ensemble Chamber Philharmonia Cologne will perform in Banff during its latest UK tour.
After several successful European and overseas tours in 2017 and 2018 the group is coming back to United Kingdom and Ireland this summer with a new programme.
The musicians will play at Banff Parish Church on Wednesday, July 24 at 7.30pm.
Jens Kehling from the group said: "Classical music the world over – this is the motto of the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne.
"It is irrelevant for our musicians whether they are playing in a little village church, in the open air, in Cologne Cathedral or in the Sydney Opera House – their enthusiasm to play music is the same every time.
"The objective is simple – we want to inspire as many people as possible across all generations to enjoy classical music.
"The popularity of our ensemble is reflected in the fact that the Chamber Philharmonia Cologne gives around 300 concerts a year around the globe and listeners throughout the world look forward to a musical encounter with our exceptionally talented musicians.
"The Chamber Philharmonia Cologne was founded in the city whose name they bear: Cologne. The city that is famous throughout the world for its University of Music and its musical and instrumental teaching.
"Generations of musicians have been trained here for many decades who, in terms of their musicality, are unparalleled around the world.
"Taking advantage of this pool of talent, a stock of outstanding musicians has accrued that in a changing cast of musicians take our motto across the world."
Tickets for the Banff performance are available at the church one hour prior to the concert from 6.30pm.
