Dear Friends and Supporters
I am writing this on 21st December, the winter solstice, and it really is a great pleasure on this shortest day of a troubled year to be thinking about next summer and the wonderful, life-
Our major choral work will be Verdi’s Requiem -
The opening concert on Wednesday 26th July sees the return of Charles Owen to play Schumann’s Piano Concerto and Aidan Oliver will conduct Poulenc’s Stabat Mater. Our other major orchestral concert on Thursday 3rd August will be an extraordinary event -
There will be chamber music concerts on Thursday 27th and Sunday 30th July and we will also have two Friday lunchtime concerts at St Kew on 28th July and 4th August, the first of which will celebrate the centenary of the birth of the Cornish poet Charles Causley. Late night concerts will contain Walton’s Façade with Rory Kinnear and a programme of song and poetry complied and devised by Iain Burnside.
I hope you will agree that this promises to be an outstanding feast of music and that we will see you at as many of the concerts as possible.
With very best wishes for 2017.
