Whittington’s seventh festival in May 2019 is a musical celebration of Bohemian variety and vivacity. The six-day festival will feature works – both familiar and less well-known – by Dvořák, Smetana, Janáček, Martinů and Suk. 

The full programme is here.

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

Last May’s ‘Fantasia on a British theme’, ranging from Purcell 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. But ‘Czech Mates’ intends to do just that.
