Summer Recital Series 2019

Every Sunday afternoon from May to September, this beautiful and historic church offers a platform for emerging artists and seasoned professionals to present exciting and eclectic programmes to the local community and the wider visiting audience. For over a decade, the Saint Anne’s Sunday Afternoon Recital Series has consistently attracted musicians of international repute to perform in this atmospheric setting.

This year’s series includes programmes from four international piano recitalists, a unique vocal recital celebrating the centenary of Polish-Jewish composer Miecyszlaw Weinberg, a new reading for harp and voice of Les nuits d’été in the sesquicentennial anniversary of the death of Hector Berlioz, a chamber music cycle featuring Messiaen’s Quatuor pour la fin du temps, Shostakovich’s Quartet no. 8 in C minor (opus 110) and Arnold Cooke’s rarely performed Piano Trio, two specialist period instrument ensembles, contemporary music collective Ensemble x.y and the return of former music director Chad Kelly to perform three concerts of the Bach Cantatas, with musical friends old and new.

Before and after every recital, home-made cakes and cream teas can be enjoyed in the church’s Parish Rooms and surrounding picturesque grounds. A retiring collection goes towards sustaining and developing the rich musical life of the community.
