A LON­DON Phil­har­monic cel­list joined a cel­e­brated jazz pi­anist for the lat­est in a se­ries of free half-hour con­certs in a Bea­cons­field church last Thurs­day.

Around 60 mu­sic lovers at the United Re­form Church en­joyed clas­si­cal and jazz duets from Robin Fir­man, who has played cello with the Lon­don Sym­phony and Phil­har­monic orches­tras, and John Hor­ler, pi­anist for jazz singer Cleo Lane.

One-off per­for­mances are held weekly in the church at 1pm on a Thurs­day, with a free plough­man’s lunch served be­fore­hand.

“More and more peo­ple from the lo­cal com­mu­nity are com­ing” said event or­gan­iser Elaine Tu­dor-Wil­liams, adding: “It’s great – I’ve seen peo­ple I haven’t seen in years.

“They re­ally en­joy the mu­sic and it isn’t too long.”

The con­certs last 30-40 min­utes.
