Hexachordia

Music from the medieval period will be played at a festive celebration in support of a children’s charity.

The trio Hexachordia will perform A Medieval Christmas - A Celebration in Music and Words at Aylsham Parish Church as part of the town’s Christmas Tree Festival.

Made up of Sarah Doig, Tony Scheuregger and Jane Scheuregger, band members play lutes, the gittern, crumhorn and other age-old instruments.

The Wednesday, November 29 concert will raise money for Hope and Homes, an international charity which helps get children out of orphanages and into homes with families. The charity was started by Norfolk’s Mark Cook, a retired British Army officer, after he read about the plight of a group of children struggling to survive in Sarajevo’s main orphanage at the height of the Bosnian War. Tickets for the concert, which starts at 7pm, are £10, including refreshments.
