Next week around this time a whole host of musicians will be itching to kick off a brilliant and breathtaking programme. Be sure to book your seat NOW for the Ashdown Music Festival’s fifth annual Gala Concert.
We’ve got a cracking display of colourful and explosive talent for you this Bonfire weekend. The 12 Ensemble (an un-conducted string orchestra) is the biggest ensemble we have welcomed to date: a visual and musical spectacle, they will perform Walton’s Serenade for Strings. Our two very watchable soloists Martyn Jackson and Reinoud Ford will take on Mozart and Haydn respectively, accompanied by the 12 PLUS bonus wind players brought in to deliver that big orchestral sound. We think children learning an instrument and/ or playing in an orchestra will enjoy our Gala (most of the 12 players STAND for much of the concert: very watchable!) With a SPECIAL PRICE special price for school-age children you can make this into a fantastic family outing.
Support us in our most ambitious endeavour yet and book your seat here! You can also call: 07764 681777 for tickets. Be sure to bring your appetites because there will be cakes and cookies galore available at interval.
See you next week! Reinoud Ford
