Tickhill Music Society presents the Alkyona Quartet

by | 4 March 2023 | Music, Worksop

Join Tickhill Music Society for a very special concert on Friday 17th March at 7.00pm in St Mary’s School, Tickhill.

Tickhill Music Society began in 1977 thanks to the enthusiasm of the Mottram family – father Philip, his wife Mary and their daughter Susan. Susan made friends with members of a string quartet, who agreed to come and play in Tickhill. The concert had an enthusiastic reception and led to a committee being formed, finance being secured and members being recruited.

Philip Mottram was the leading light of the Society until recent years and, following his death last year, his daughters have generously funded the concert on 17th March – a string quartet again!

The Alkyona Quartet will be performing works by Brahms, Borodin and Henriette Bosmans. The word ‘alkyona’ is Greek for kingfisher; the audience can expect something equally brilliant!

Non-members are welcome at a ticket price of £12.00, payable at the door. Accompanied children and students (aged 16 to 19) are admitted free of charge.
