Ansells Summer Music June 29th-July 1st 2018

This year is our festival’s 10th anniversary, and it promises to be a truly wonderful weekend of world-class entertainment.

Friday 29th June 8pm we welcome back the brilliant actor Andy Harrison to share the stage with baritone Stephen Varcoe and pianist Christina Lawrie in a light-hearted programme of words and music around the theme of ‘The Turning Year’.

Saturday 30th June 8pm fabulous, internationally acclaimed chamber ensemble The Fibonnacci Sequence return to the Ansells barn to bring us some delectable musical treats. Those who heard their astonishing violinist Daniel Pioro play here two years ago will be thrilled that he will once again be part of the group, this time playing Vaughan Williams’ ethereal The Lark Ascending. Cellist Ashok Klouda will play one of music’s most gorgeous works for solo cello, Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata, and pianist Kathryn Sturrock & Stephen Varcoe (speaker) will match Tchaikovsky’s short piano pieces The Seasons with poems and readings. All this and more!

And, of course, on Sunday July 1st afternoon there’ll be our traditional short concert by the weekend’s singing students followed by tea & cakes in the garden at Ansells. (£5 incl)

To book seats (£14 each evening concert or all three for a special price of £30) contact svarcoe1@gmail.com, or ring 01787 269570.
