SEPTEMBER 2018 - SG Wealth Management Gala Concert

Our soloist for our biggest concert of this year was extraordinary baroque violinist Rachel Podger, the Gramophone Artist of the Year 2018....
We are incredibly lucky to have the backing of SG Wealth Management which enables us to book soloists of the highest calibre, such as Rachel Podger. Anyone who heard her before will remember her mastery of baroque playing. She has travelled worldwide, won many coveted awards for a recordings and remains incredibly humble and warm. Needless to say, we couldn't wait to have her with us again, and the wait proved well worth while.

The Times declared her.....
"Rachel Podger, the unsurpassed British glory of the baroque violin!"
.. and we would tend to agree.

Welcome by Steve Girling, director of SG Wealth Management, Principal Sponsors of Norwich Baroque
