Stonegrove Serenade October 2023


Stonegrove Serenade – Music for the Community

EHRS is delighted to present Stonegrove Serenade, a series of concerts at EHRS. On every third Tuesday of the month, please join us for music featuring up and coming classical musicians.

Audiences and musicians alike have praised Stonegrove Serenade’s fantastic acoustics, intimate concert setting and warm welcome and attendees have been bowled over with the standard of talent the series has attracted. Café 118 has delighted customers with its fresh and tasty homemade food. Some of the comments we have received is that its ‘an oasis of calm’ and ‘it doesn’t matter if you’re on your own, there is always someone friendly to sit with’.
Stonegrove Serenade and Café 118 are run by volunteers with support from EHRS and Simply Scrumptious Catering. We pay our talented musicians – high calibre students and graduates of The Royal College of Music – providing work for them, as well as an opportunity for audiences to enjoy a very reasonably priced meal, concert and company. We are grateful for everyone’s donations on the door and some generous extra donations which enable us to continue to book musicians. All funds raised go into the provision of Stonegrove Serenade and Café 118 and not to other synagogue purposes.

Tuesday 17 October, 13:00
We welcome Cygnus Trio.
Formed in 2012 by three students at the Royal Academy of Music, Javier Montañana on violin, Hannah Lewis on cello, and Cesar Saura on piano, the award winning trio have performed extensively throughout Europe and the UK. From 2017 to 2020 they participated in the specialised chamber music courses run by the Accademia Walter Stauffer in Cremona, working closely with members of the Quartetto di Cremona. The trio has received prizes in international competitions including the Anton Garcia Abril chamber music competition and the Ecoparque de Trasmiera competition. In the summer of 2022 they were awarded the Recording Prize at the Filippo Nicosia Award in Italy, and in 2023 will be recording their first commercial CD for Da Vinci Records with an accompanying programme of concerts.
At this concert they will be performing works by Haydn and Beethoven.

We invite you to enjoy a light lunch in our pop up cafe before the concert. ‘Cafe 118’ will be open 12:00. The café will re-open after the concert with drinks, cake and a chat. Please note when booking if you will be using the café.

All are welcome. Admission is free, suggested donation £5.
