After last year’s Brahms triumph, this year we have a Schubert Fest with four successive nights of the great Romantic’s most memorable chamber works, performed by nine brilliant international musicians. It runs from May 6-9: the 6th is at Holy Trinity Oswestry (£16), 7th-9th at St John the Baptist Whittington (£12 a night or £30 for all three). Book online or buy tickets at Rowanthorn, Woodhead Estates or Mile End Visitors’ Centre. Anybody aged 8-25 qualifies for free entry at any of the Whittington concerts.
Full details can be found on the website, including a lunchtime concert at Whittington on May 9th marking the WW1 Centenary, in conjunction with Oswestry’s Derwen College and London’s Wigmore Hall.
It really is a Festival not to be missed! Those who know what to expect from Schubert can be assured of world-class performances; those who have little experience of music of this kind will be bowled over by it and enchanted by our delightfully personable artists.
