Philip, who now lives on Teesside, trained at Trinity College of Music in London and works with many chamber groups and orchestras, including Royal Northern Sinfonia, English Sinfonia and the English Philharmonic Ensemble.

David, who lives in Monkseaton, is in constant demand as a soloist, accompanist and chamber music partner, having accompanied top musicians in recitals all over the world. He is also well known as a choral trainer and conductor and is permanent conductor of Bishopwearmouth Choral Society and Hexham Abbey Festival Chorus.

Brian Stewart studied at the Royal College of Music before joining the Ensemble of the Lewis London Ballet with which he toured the UK. He now lives in the North East and is a respected performer. He also teaches the flute at both Newcastle and Durham universities.

The concert is the third in a programme of chamber concerts at the Old Low Light organised by David and his wife Jennifer, an accomplished clarinettist.

David said: “It is a great pleasure for us to bring first rate chamber musicians to such a lovely community venue as the Old Low Light. We hope this is making chamber music more accessible to local people by providing it on their doorstep.”

Guy Moody, centre director at the Old Low Light said: “We are delighted to host concerts by such acclaimed musicians and are very grateful to David and Jennifer for supporting us in this way.”
