Claire Wickes, having made speedy progress with positions in the BBCSO and the Philharmonia before settling in as principal Flute at the ENO, pursues a diverse career as soloist and chamber musician, and this eclectic and bold programme with the harpist Tomos Xerri demonstrates their refreshingly catholic enthusiasms. 

Tomos Xerri is a multiple award winner, and in addition to a full schedule of concerto and chamber music appearances devotes considerable energy to outreach work. Their enticing kaleidoscopic programme, which will enchant and intrigue the ear, is tailor made for the lovely acoustics of St John’s.
