This Joe Stirling Memorial Concert (see below) is free of charge to NCM Season ticket holders and Members.
There will be a pre-concert talk by Phyllida Scrivens at 2.00pm, entitled Escaping Hitler: The remarkable life of Joe Stirling.
Phyllida Scrivens is a published biographer and public speaker, living in Thorpe St Andrew. She met Joe Stirling by chance in 2011 and spent the following three years interviewing him and numerous others about his remarkable life. Her first book, Escaping Hitler: A Jewish Boy’s Quest for Freedom and His Future, was written alongside her MA studies in Biography at UEA and published by Pen and Sword Books in 2016. Signed copies of the book will be available for sale at £18 (cash or card) on the day.
Ever enterprising, the 2020 coronavirus crisis saw the Dudok Quartet embrace new initiatives with the launch of its own “Signature Sessions” concert series in Amsterdam, supported by the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.
On his death, Joe Stirling left a generous legacy to Norfolk & Norwich Music Club (now Norwich Chamber Music), in appreciation of the great pleasure he had gained from his membership and the concerts it has organised.
It was his wish that the legacy be used to support an annual concert, with free admission extended to current members, his family and students. Members are invited to make a voluntary contribution to extend the duration of the fund for future concerts (or at the Trustees' discretion, the musical education of young people).
