Classical Guitarist - From Mexico City to Crosby
Symphony Orchestra welcomes classical guitarist Morgan Szymanski for
their first concert of 2010 at St.Faith's Church on Sunday, 7
February 2010, at 7.30pm.
Morgan, described as “one to watch” by BBC Music
magazine and The Gramophone magazine, was born in Mexico City,
playing guitar aged 6 and graduated with First Class Honours from
the Royal College of Music in London. He won all the guitar prizes
as well as several scholarships, and has given recitals worldwide
including the Wigmore Hall, the Bridgewater Hall and other major UK
venues. For his debut performance with the Royal Philharmonic
Orchestra he played Rodrigo's “Concerto de Aranjuez”,
the most requested guitar piece on Classic FM, and which he has
chosen to play with the Crosby Symphony Orchestra. The music has
been used in movies, TV shows and commercials, and many people will
recognise it without knowing its name.
Robert Sells will also conduct the orchestra in Elgar's popular
'Introduction and Allegro' for Strings, which features a string
quartet separate from the orchestra, and Haydn's Symphony No. 31
known as the “Hornsignal” because the horn is very
prominent, while the last movement is a set of variations designed
to show off different instruments.
The wind section get their chance to shine as Edward Peak will
return to Crosby as a Special Guest to conduct the Wind Serenade in
E flat by the young Richard Strauss. This jaunty piece was his first
to be regularly performed and is still a favourite today.
The concert is at St.Faith's Church (corner of Crosby Road North and
Kingsway) on Sunday, 7 February 2010 at 7.30. Tickets are available
at Pritchard's Bookshop, Crosby Village, priced at £8 (£7
concessions) and on the door.

MERSEYSIDE Police Detectives are
appealing for witnesses following a burglary at a house in Aigburth
last night in which the occupiers were confronted by six men armed
with a knife and golf clubs.
Officers were called to the house in Rosemont Road, Aigburth,

carried out and detectives are viewing CCTV footage from the area.
Superintendent Jon Roy from Liverpool South Command Team, said:-

family and we are determined to do all we can to catch those
responsible. Fortunately no-one was hurt but the offenders made
threats and stole jewellery that was precious to the family, along
with their mobile phones. I would appeal to anyone who was in the
area at the time, who perhaps were walking their dog, on their way
home from work or gym, or going to the pub, to think if they saw
anything suspicious, and call us if they did. Their information
