Victoria's Treasures

Featuring Marianne Olyver, violin & Miaomiao Yu, piano

Bach to School's concerts in 2019 celebrate the 200th birthday of Queen Victoria. As well as being an iconic British monarch, political powerhouse, accomplished musician and mum of nine, Victoria was a trailblazer, early tech adopter and culture vulture.

No need to bow your head, our violinist will bow beautiful tunes instead: hear music by elegant Elgar, sensational Schumann and Her Majesty's favourite, the magnificent Mendelssohn!

About the venue

Bournville was founded by the Cadbury family and named after the river running through, the river Bourn. Most famous for its chocolate factory, George Cadbury was also a Quaker and commissioned the construction of a meeting house. Designed by William Alexander Harvey, it was built in 1905. Intended to be inclusive to workers of other Christian faiths, it was equipped with an organ which would not normally be expected in a Quaker meeting house in Britain.
