One of the world’s most famous classical trumpet players is set to perform in Sudbury this weekend.

Crispian Steele-Perkins will play with the strings of Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra at St Peter’s on Sunday.

The trumpeter plays the theme tune to the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow and his music can be heard in Bond films and Dr Who.

Mr Steele-Perkins has also played with popular artists, such as Kate Bush and Cliff Richard, as well as classical artists Emma Kirkby and Bryn Terfel.

Simon Barrett, managing director of Barrett Lee, which is sponsoring the event, said: “It is fantastic that someone of Crispian’s global magnitude has agreed to play in Sudbury.

“Events such as these give the community something to look forward to and an opportunity to come together for a special occasion.

“As a local business, we always try to support community activities and that is why we decided to sponsor this event.”

Mr Steele-Perkins will perform in company with strings of the Suffolk Philharmonic Orchestra, directed by Leslie Olive.

The programme is a cascade of music for trumpet and strings by Handel, Charpentier, Stanley and Neruda.

Suffolk Philharmonic is a professional orchestra made up of some of the finest professional orchestral musicians in the country.

The concert starts at 4pm, and cream tea will be served during the interval.

Tickets range from £18 to £26 and are available online at www.suffolkphil.org or from Compact Music in North Street, Sudbury.
