Czech mates – a week of Bohemian rhapsody

2018’s Fantasia of British music, ranging from Dowland to contemporary, with some unforgettable Scottish folk thrown in for good measure, is going to be a hard one to beat. Nonetheless, our seventh festival in May 2019, focussing on Dvorak and his compatriots, intends to do just that. 

As well as Dvorak, the six-day festival will feature works – both familiar and less well-known – by Smetana, Janacek and Suk among others. Keep an eye on this website as the programme begins to come together: (in the meantime, apologies for unavailable pages and out-of-date material).

Once again, Whittington Music Festival will attract fifteen world-class musicians, who will offer outreach events in the community as well as their six concerts.

Whittington Music Festival is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation No 1168989
