Louise Vale, Violin & Tim Sidford, Piano
Profits, after expenses, to Worcester Royal Hospital Ophthalmology Department
An attractive summer afternoon recital organised by Louise Vale, a professional violinist who has
played with (among others) the BBC Philharmonic and Hallé Orchestras. She will be joined by
pianist, Tim Sidford, to open the concert with a performance of the Allegro Vivo from Debussy’s
Violin and Piano Sonata, marking the centenary of Debussy’s untimely death in 1918.
Local musicians, 8-18 years, most of whom are violin and piano students of Louise, will also
display their talents via music from 17th to 20th century exploring a range of styles from Folk, Rag,
Tango to Classical.
Worcester has one of the leading eye units in the country and they are currently raising funds for
specialist equipment to further develop their excellent work. Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, Mr
Tarun Sharma is thrilled about the event and comments “this not only helps the Department raise
funds for specialist equipment, but is a big morale boost for our staff who feel being valued by the
Community, promotes the culture of a kind and caring work environment”.
Louise studied at the Royal Northern College of Music, Tim at the Royal College of Music and both
have performed extensively throughout Europe and the UK including the Three Choirs Festival,
Barbican, Festival Hall, The Proms, Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, St Martins-in-the-Fields.
