Concert-goers are eagerly awaiting the visit to Sidmouth Parish Church tomorrow (Saturday, November 26) of the brilliant South Korean violinist, Joo Yeon Sir.

She will be performing the much-loved Violin Concerto No 1 by Max Bruch and perform alongside Roger Hendy and the Isca Ensemble of 60 players.

The concert, which starts at 7.30pm, will raise funds for an appeal to restore the Queen’s Window.

Joo Yeon Sir is winner of The Arts Club Karl Jenkins Classical Music Award 2014 and the Royal College of Music’s President’s Award. She has performed at the Royal Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Festival Hall, Wigmore Hall, Manchester Bridgewater Hall, Fairfield Halls and at St James’s Palace in the presence of HRH The Prince of Wales. The violinist has appeared live on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune and her performances have been broadcast on Classic FM.

The rest of the programme consists of Copland’s Appalachian Spring, containing the famous Shaker melodies and Symphony No 5 by Jean Sibelius.

Tickets can be obtained in advance from Paragon Books, by visiting, or on the door. Doors open at 6.30pm.
