THREE young musicians who have already made an impact in the classical music world - Stephen Upshaw (viola), Sam Armstrong (piano), and Eloisa-Fleur Thom (violin) - are set to perform as part of Concerts in the West next month.

‘Supercharged’ American violist Stephen Upshaw made his concerto debut at just 17, since when he has won several competitions and played in festivals around the world including the BBC Proms, Cheltenham, IMS Prussia Cove, Lucerne, Brighton, Huddersfield and more.

Eloisa-Fleur Thom is a prize-winning violinist, director and curator. Highlights of her career so far include performing JS Bach’s Concerto in D minor for two violins with the celebrated violinist Maxim Vengerov, chamber music with Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood (LCO soloists), and appearing as soloist at the 2019 BBC Proms for Arvo Pärt’s Fratres with 12 ensemble.

Described as a “pianist of splendid individuality” by Arts Desk, pianist Sam Armstrong has made solo recital debuts at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall in New York as well as at the Wigmore Hall in London, and as concerto soloist with the National Symphony of Ecuador.

The three musicians will be at Bridport Arts Centre, Ilminster Arts Centre and The Dance House in Crewkerne on April 3 and 4. Please note at the time of printing as far as we are aware, the concerts are still taking place. To keep updated visit or call 01823 252658.
