This special launch concert will be held on the evening of Tuesday 28th January 2014 at the home of the leading patrons of the arts Sir Vernon and Lady Ellis.
The concert programme will include chamber music performed by an ensemble of top young instrumentalists led by the Festival’s Associate Artistic Director – the outstanding violinist Jamie Campbell. The group comprises Ruth Gibson (viola), Nathaniel Boyd (cello) and James Baillieu (piano): all are artists due to take part in the inaugural festival in August 2014.
Their programme will include Beethoven’s String Trio in C minor and the Brahms Violin Sonata no. 2 in A major. In addition, festival director Marcus Farnsworth will perform a range of classical and contemporary songs.
We are most grateful to Sir Vernon and Lady Ellis for generously making their elegant home available for this special concert. The soirée will be a fitting metropolitan sequel to the highly successful launch event in Southwell Minster in October which was attended by more than 170 people.
In addition to the splendid surroundings the occasion will be made even more special by the presence of the Festival’s Founder Patron – the distinguished British soprano Dame Felicity Lott.
Tickets including wine and canapés are £25. The evening starts at 7.00 for 7.30 and will be over by 9.45pm. It is expected that there will be a high demand for this event.
