From Sunday 21 March to Saturday 27 March the fourth Guildford Spring Music Festival will take place with a series of 14 events – all including musicians with a significant connection with Guildford.
Festival President, Philip Langridge, the star tenor who is appearing at the Royal Opera House and New York’s Metropolitan Opera this year will join forces with the prize-winning Heath String Quartet and pianist Terence Allbright. Jonathan Veira, the international baritone, will be singing, playing and recounting his humorous anecdotes from his life in music. And the sensation of the decade, Rock Choir, will give four performances on the opening day.
Concerts range from a jazz lunch with Jimmy Hastings to Songs from the Shows presented by GSA. Surrey Brass is returning as is international harpsichordist, Penelope Cave. Simon Phillips and Stephen Ridge appear again, playing on two pianos. And a gala concert from the Surrey Mozart Players, featuring international contralto, Emma Curtis, singing Sea Pictures by Elgar, closes the week. Plus, the Santiago String Quartet will play a programme of North and South American music. Young people are represented by the Musicians of the Guildford County School and The Surrey Cantata makes its festival debut with a selection of English choral music.
With so much happening how can you resist!
