‘Escala’ as seen on ‘Britain’s Got Talent’
Esala have been together for two years after meeting on a tour bus travelling round

there that they became great friends and decided to form a band incorporating both
their talent for playing classical music and their love of contemporary styles.

‘’Johnston has already forged a place as one of the country’s most distinctive cellists’’

to open the BBC Proms playing the Elgar Cello Concerto with the BBC Symphony

Monday 11 August - Thursday 14 August
High Street Methodist Church
                             With grateful acknowledgement to the
                 Harpenden Music Foundation for the supply of the piano.

These delightful concerts are given by advanced students who are taking part in the
Musicale Young Artists’ Programme. Most of the players are thinking of making music
their career and some are about to enter Music College.

Concerts take place each day in front of an audience which walks in off the High Street
(what better way to spend a lunch-hour!).
The players are also supported by their friends from the music course. Each programme
is made up of two, twenty minute recitals. The result is a fantastically diverse offering of
music spread over four days. Not to be missed!

Entrance to the lunchtime concerts is free, but a retiring collection will be made every
day in aid of ‘Rupert’s Fund’ in support of providing transport for clients of Kent House
Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust, Aylesbury.



 While every effort is made to ensure that the information in this leaflet is correct at the time of going to
                 press, some alterations to the programme or artists may be necessary.
