The musicians of the Chiltern Camerata close their current season with a concert of music by Mozart and Mendelssohn on Sunday 9th June at the Church of St Lawrence, West Wycombe at 6pm - doors open at 5.30.

This concert will be the Sam Laughton's final concert with the orchestra. Sam has presided over a golden decade with the Camerata during which it has progressed through a broadening repertoire to ever higher standards.

This concert is characterised by beginnings and endings. The programme includes the first and last symphonies of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: His symphony No 1 was written in 1764 at the age of eight. His magnificent final symphony No 41 - The masterpiece 'Jupiter' - was composed 24 years later, just three years before his death.

We also welcome to the concert the celebrated violinist Alexandra Caldon for a performance of the ever-popular Mendelssohn Violin Concerto.

The Chiltern Camerata perhaps needs little introduction: Founded in 1996, this chamber orchestra of music professionals and advanced amateurs presents innovative and attractive concerts in and around the Chilterns and ThamesValley.

Sam Laughton has been the orchestra's Director of Music since 2009. During his term of office, which concludes with this concert, he has overseen a golden decade in which he has enabled the orchestra to broaden its repertoire and raise the standard of it music-making.

Alexandra Caldon graduated in June 2008 with Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music where she completed her Postgraduate Diploma under Erich Gruenberg. Whilst at the Academy she led the Concert Orchestra, was a member of the Academy Soloists, received the Bache Fund Prize, and in her final year was Project Manager of the Leverhulme Orchestral Mentoring Scheme. As a member of the Pirani Horn Trio she won the Academy’s piano trio prize, and was invited by the British Horn Society to give a performance of the Berkeley Horn Trio, Op 44 at a Memorial Concert for Dennis Brain.

In 2006 Alexandra completed her undergraduate degree in Music at SelwynCollege, Cambridge, graduating with first class honours. Whilst at Cambridge she received a University Instrumental Award, led the University Chamber Orchestra, and appeared as soloist in Mozart’s Violin Concerto in A major, K219. She was also awarded the Williamson Prize for Performance from SelwynCollege. From 2007 – 2008 she was a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra, with whom she toured Europe and Asia.

Alexandra has also studied with Peter Hanson and Sophie Langdon, and is now working in London. In 2010 she was appointed No 3 Second Violin with Britten Sinfonia, with whom she has toured the UK and abroad. She is also very active in our Creative Learning work, particularly with Britten Sinfonia Academy.

Alexandra has also worked with the London Sinfonietta (including a performance at last year’s BBC Proms) and plays frequently with the London Chamber Orchestra.
