Welcome to the website of the Whittington International Chamber Music Festival!
We have set the bar high for ourselves for a first chamber music festival in a celebration of the 180th birthday of one of music’s greatest geniuses, and you are warmly invited to join us! All of Johannes Brahms’s chamber music will be performed by the Leondari Ensemble, an extraordinary multi-national group of artists, in the space of ten days from May 1st – 9th 2013 in the largely undiscovered Welsh border country north of Shrewsbury.
For lovers of Brahms’s music, the festival is a must! For those who enjoy listening to beautiful music in evocative venues, our festival cannot fail to appeal. For those who have never experienced a chamber music concert before, ticket prices have been capped at a very low price so why not try it!
Brahms-immersion in Shropshire, described by P. G. Wodehouse as “the nearest earthly place to paradise”, makes for a potentially powerful experience.
