About Harp and strings at Dorchester Abbey

Internationally acclaimed harpist Keziah Thomas and Orchestra of St John’s present an evening of sublime music for strings and harp at Dorchester Abbey.

Schoenberg Notturno for Strings and Harp
Wolf Ferrari String Serenade, Scherzo and Presto
Debussy Danses Sacrée et Profane
Suk Serenade

A soaring solo violin, a gentle harp, the warmth of a string orchestra… Schoenberg’s atmospheric Notturno for Strings and Harp, composed when he was just 17, is an underperformed delight. Join us to discover this gorgeous work alongside beautiful pieces by Wolf Ferrari, Debussy and Suk, performed with the wonderful Keziah Thomas.
