The Bath-based National Osteoporosis Society is delighted to announce that it will be bringing three talented artists to Bradford-on-Avon on July 11, 2015. And, there is a special opportunity for only 50 guests to join the cast for a post-performance drinks and canapé reception.

Pianist Lucy Parham, together with actors Joanna David and Edward Fox, will bring to life the passionate and tragic story of the relationships between Robert Schumann, his wife Clara and Johannes Brahms.

The piece is drawn from their intimate letters and diaries and illustrated with their expressive piano music. The creation of Beloved Clara was inspired by Lucy Parham’s lifelong passion for the music of Brahms and Schumann and premiered at the Wigmore Hall Masters Series in 2002. It has since been performed on stage and radio world-wide to enormous acclaim, but this will be the first time it has been performed in the South West.

Actress Joanna David is a committed supporter of The National Osteoporosis Society. She says; “Osteoporosis is a devastating condition that affects so many lives and families, including my own. There is so much that can be done to prevent it and to improve the lives of sufferers, which is why we - my good friend Lucy Parham and my husband Edward Fox – are giving this performance in aid of the National Osteoporosis Society. We hope the South West will do us proud.”

The performance will take place on Saturday, July 11, 2015 at the Wiltshire Music Centre, Bradford-on-Avon at 7pm. All profits will benefit The National Osteoporosis Society; putting an end to preventable broken bones and helping people to live without pain and disability.

50 VIP tickets available at £50 per person, to include entry to a post-concert drinks and canapé reception with the artists. All other tickets are £25 per person (concessions available).
