2018’s Fantasia of British music, ranging from Dowland to John Ireland to Sally Beamish, 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an eye on this website as the programme begins to come together: (in the meantime, apologies for unavailable pages and out-of-date material).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.
