Environmental building services consultancy Couch Perry & Wilkes has sponsored the Orchestra of the Swan’s performance of ‘The Romantic Violin’ at the historic Town Hall in Birmingham for the second year running.
The Birmingham-based firm has given its backing to the performance, which included world-class violin soloist Tasmin Little performing Bruch.
The performance of The Romantic Violin, on March 17, was conducted by David Curtis and featured Rossini, Mozart, Dvorak and Bruch.
The afternoon matinee concert was part of a series of Town Hall Classics being performed over the coming months.
Couch Perry & Wilkes marketing director Simon Seaton-Smith said: “Being part of the community and supporting local charities and the arts has always been important to the company. We’re delighted to help out financially.”
David Curtis, artistic director at the Orchestra of the Swan, said, “The city’s motto ‘By the gains of industry we promote art’ can be seen on the foundation of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, opposite the Town Hall.
“It is wonderful to see Couch Perry & Wilkes continuing this historic tradition with their support of Orchestra of the Swan.
“World class artists such as Tasmin Little enjoy performing with our orchestra and the support Couch Perry & Wilkes have given us has made this possible.”
