About Orchestra Pro Anima at Berkeley Castle

The Annual Christmas Concert in The Great Hall at Berkeley Castle

Orchestra Pro Anima directed from the violin by Michael Bochmann MBE with oboe soloist Ruth Watson and cello soloist Peter Adams

This ever-popular seasonal event is sure to be as memorable as ever. The concert in the magnificent Great Hall will be preceded by a reception from 5pm in the elegant Long Drawing Room with its wall mirrors, gilt furniture and beautiful portraits: here you can enjoy fine wine, mince pies and much other festive fare. The Christmas trees and twinkling lights create a truly special atmosphere at this marvellous historic venue.

Michael Bochmann has directed this annual concert throughout its 20-year history and the members of the Orchestra, whose musicianship and warmth of presentation have been much heralded, have played together over such a long period that they have developed a real affinity with one another, forged over time.
