Lewes Chamber Music Festival
10th to 12th June
The past year has not been easy for anyone. It was with a heavy heart that we cancelled our plans for the June 2020 Festival, replacing it with a summer video series of mini performances professionally recorded from the musicians’ homes and empty concert halls from London to Berlin.
Encouraged by our ability to squeeze in a live Christmas concert in Lewes in December between Government-imposed lockdowns, we have decided to forge ahead with plans for a live Festival for 2021. Much like the Christmas Concert the audience capacity will be 50%, in line with the rules that will still be in place at that time; but despite this we believe it is worth it! The appetite and need for live performances will be immense for both audiences and musicians so we cannot wait to present a full programme of wonderful concerts to the Lewes community.
Among our group of world-class musicians are:
Beatrice Philips, violin & Artistic Director; Maria Włoszczowska, violin; Tim Crawford, violin; Vashti Hunter, cello; Hannah Sloane, cello; Alasdair Beatson, piano; Bengt Forsberg, piano; Matt Hunt, clarinet; Amy Harman, bassoon; Allan Clayton, tenor; and The Eusebius Quartet – to name a few.
Tickets must be pre-bought and are available on our website along with full details at www.leweschambermusicfestival.com.
