The Young Musicians Platform Competition is now over for 2016, and the winners are:
Hannah McFarlane - Cello
Joel Munday - Violin
Clara Sherratt - Piano
Poppy Webb-Taylor - Oboe
Welcome to the Two Moors Festival - one of the most exciting chamber music festivals in Britain!
Concerts at the highest level possible take place in some of the most rural and scenic areas tucked away in the depths of Dartmoor and Exmoor. To whet your appetite, this year’s artists include Alison Balsom, Tom Poster, Michael Barenboim and many more besides.
There are twenty-three recitals and concerts taking happening between the 22nd and 29th October. The repertoire is varied, exciting and covers a time span from Gregorian Chant to the present day. There are serious recitals, a family concert, a workshop for anyone who enjoys singing, open rehearsals and the Young Musicians Platform winners event to attend. Ticket prices are competitive too, so what more could one wish for!
Many visitors enjoy combining a holiday with culture. Sampling a cream tea followed by an evening of Schubert and Brahms is a good mix; fish and chips from one of the excellent pubs in the area would certainly provide stamina for the singing workshop and a glass or two of cider would put one in the right frame of mind for the Victorian Feast!
All will be revealed in the brochure to be released during next month. Do come and bring your friends! You don’t need to travel to London for music in a class of its own.
Come and hear the “finest school orchestra in the world.”
