Early Music Festival 2019

Thanks to everyone involved our festival this year was a great success. We attracted visitors from Spain, Dublin, Aberystwyth, Peterborough, Cheltenham and of course many from nearer to home. Our return to the Guildhall for the two evening concerts was well received and our new venture, the family concert proved popular.

The Musical and Amicables gave a glittering performance of Baroque trio sonatas (you can hear a clip on the Worcester Arts Council website). Fontanella recorder consort gave us a rich variety of music spanning from the fifteenth to 21st century, and the Emily Askew Band proved to be a fitting finale to our festival with their medieval music presented in a folk tradition.
