Dear Friends of the AMF, Music Lovers and Festival Supporters,
This past weekend has been a busy behind-the-scenes one for the AMF as kitchen surfaces were given over to mixing bowls and baking tins. We’ve been tweaking our bakes and cakes for our Big Bang Gala Concert on Sunday 6th November and we think you’re going to LOVE the results! Succulent spiced carrot cake, lemon-scented almond loaf and not to mention our mega choc-dipped oaty biscuits for the young (at heart)!
Our Gala is offering much more besides bakes: music to delight the senses and something unique for the area. For the first time in a LONG time Forest Row will be treated to uplifting ORCHESTRAL strains as the brilliant 12 Ensemble (an un-conducted 12 person string ensemble from London) takes to the stage, to be joined by 4 wind players for two concertos. Walton, Mozart and Haydn: I can think of no better friends to share a slice of something sweet with.
Our Festival weekend also features an intimate evening of chamber works for piano and strings (Friday 4th November) and an afternoon of “Grand Tour” Baroque music played by the award-winning Brook Street Band. Treat yourself to a Season Ticket to enjoy all three concerts! We’ve got a Family Concert for our younger ones on Saturday 5th November.
Please book now to show your support and we will bring you some magical musical times.
