Czech mates – a week of Bohemian rhapsody

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an eye on this website as the programme begins to come together: (in the meantime, apologies for unavailable pages and out-of-date material).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.

Whittington Music Festival is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation No 1168989
