Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival

Peasmarsh, Rye and Winchelsea – 1st  to 4th July 2021

It is with great excitement that everyone involved with the Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival is looking forward to a return to live music in early July. In these uncertain times, what better tonic can there be than to look ahead to brighter times of music-making? With twelve concerts scheduled across four days, and wonderful classical music spanning three centuries of creativity, we hope you will be able to join us.

As always, the Peasmarsh Festival includes a superlative roster of world class artists. Joining violinist Anthony Marwood and cellist Richard Lester, we welcome Katya Apekisheva, co-director of the London Piano Festival, former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Young Artist Alec Frank-Gemmill; double bassist Graham Mitchell and two stellar ensembles, the Navarra and Barbican String Quartets.

On Friday evening, our guests will take to the stage as a wonderful ensemble of ‘Peasmarsh Virtuosi’, joining Anthony and Richard for our annual concerto concert in Rye. We are also delighted to announce that this year, in addition to concerts in the Norman church in Peasmarsh and St Mary’s in Rye, we will be presenting two concerts in stunning Winchelsea – in the beautiful Church of St Thomas, with its famous stained glass windows and scintillating acoustics, and affording us the opportunity to reach a wider audience. We will also be offering music workshops in local schools, building on over fifteen years of educational partnerships in this special corner of East Sussex.
