Renowned conductor and violinist Christopher Warren-Green, who arranged and conducted the music at three royal weddings including the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall, and his wife Rosemary, an acclaimed violin/viola player and recording artist, will be performing at St Andrew's Church in Fersfield on July 13.

They will be performing Schubert String Quintet in C major and other favourites with an ensemble of other well known classical players including Kathryn Parry, Wendy Gudgin, Harriet Bennett and David Bucknall.
