Celebrating the 150th anniversity of Alfred E Rodewald

The School of Music and the Rodewald Concert Society (RCS) are hosting an afternoon of chamber music to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Alfred E Rodewald, musician and founder of the Liverpool Orchestral Society.

The RCS was founded in 1911, eight years after Alfred’s death, with the aim of giving performances of string quartets and other chamber music and offering lectures on musical subjects.

The programme for the celebration concert has been specifically selected because of its links with Alfred E Rodewald and will feature works by Elgar, who was a close friend of his, as well as new compositions.

The event on Sunday 29 January 2012, 2.30pm will take place in the Herculaneum Room, Carnatic House, in Mossley Hill.

Tickets for the concert are £14 (£15 on the door), Students £8. To book, please contact the Liverpool Philharmonic Box Office on 0151 709 3789 or the School of the Arts on 0151 795 3129.
