Mendelssohn's Last Years

Mayfield

Sun 29th Apr

This concert of Mendelssohn’s greatest music from the 1840s marks a significant opening night in Mayfield Festival’s history.

The Tunbridge Wells International Music Competition’s 2016 winner – the New Zealander Amalia Hall – plays the world’s best-loved violin concerto. And the Festival Choir joins forces with Primavera for a performance of Mendelssohn’s Choral Symphony, the Lobgesang (‘Song of Praise’). The three vocal soloists are Josephine Baker Scholars from the Royal College of Music – you heard them here first.

  • Mendelssohn Violin Concerto
  • Mendelssohn Symphony No 2 Lobgesang (Hymn of Praise)
  • Mayfield Festival Choir musical director – Jeremy Summerly
  • London Primavera leader – Paul Manley
  • Amalia Hall – Violin – winner of the 2016 Tunbridge Wells International Competition at Mayfield Festival
  • St Dunstan’s Church, Mayfield

Part of the Mayfield Festival, a series of mostly musical events running from 28th April to 13th May 2018.

The Best of May

In the midst of various music acts the Assembly Hall has Grease (15-19 May), this production from TWODS will be excellent so worth checking out. This is followed (from 29 May) by Joe Pasquale as the hapless Frank Spencer in Some Mother Do 'Ave 'Em. If you hanker for a bit of slapstick this may be for you.
