Sunday Afternoon Music Recitals commence on 6th May at 15.30
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 St. Anne’s Sunday Afternoon Recital Series has consistently attracted musicians of international repute to perform in this uniquely atmospheric setting.
This year’s series includes keyboard music spanning four centuries, performances by opera artistes from the stages of Covent Garden and Grange Park, a chamber music cycle featuring repertoire for wind trio, string quartet and music for piano and wind instruments, two specialist period instrument ensembles, the world première of a violin sonata, an international trombone and piano duo, and the return of former music director Chad Kelly to perform three concerts of the music of Mozart, 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 church.
