Mezzo soprano Marta Fontanals-Simmons and pianist Christopher Glynn are joined by violist and Artistic Director Rosalind Ventris. These fine artists come together specially for the festival in a moving programme including Brahms’s Zwei Gesänge, Op.91, Clara Schumann’s Romances and Eleanor Alberga’s Ride Through.
Note: This year, to ensure that our audiences feel safe and comfortable, all festival concerts will be run with social distancing in place. To enable this, all concerts will be about 1 hour long, with no interval, and each performance will be given twice (with both concerts sharing an identical programme).
Because of pandemic restrictions, we are unable to provide an in-person box office this year. Given the reduced audience capacity, booking in advance is strongly recommended.
