We are so excited today to announce the programmes for both our 2021 festivals in Beverley! We will be welcoming friends old and new amongst the musician team, and cannot wait to see our friends in the audience too.
Our Summer festival
Beverley Chamber Music Festival
We hope you enjoy browsing what we have on offer. The programme celebrates the 40th birthday of the Humber Bridge, the 1300th birthday of Beverley, and nods to the town’s incredible American connections in a feast of music from across the pond.
Featured artists across the two festivals include Julian Bliss, Ailish Tynan, Anna Cavaliero, Joshua Ellicott, Maria Wloszczowska, Fenella Humphreys, Tim Lowe, James Baillieu, the Sacconi Quartet, and of course our very own Martin Roscoe and Libby Burgess. We have a world premiere and some fascinating speakers lined up, as well as some wonderful opportunities for young musicians in the area.
Public booking for the Summer Festival opens on Tuesday 1st June: prior to that, our Friends and Patrons have a priority booking period. If you wish to join that scheme in order to support New Paths and gain this benefit, you can do that here:
Needless to say, all events will be held in accordance with government guidance on social distancing, and all other appropriate measures will be in place so you can enjoy live music again safely and confidently.
Meanwhile our local audience in the East Riding area might be interested to know that our Artistic Director, Libby Burgess, is performing in Beverley this week. Undertaking a major challenge this year, Libby is playing the whole of Bach’s ’48’ in every one of England’s 48 counties, raising money for musical charities. Her nationwide tour begins this week in the East Riding, with lunchtime performances at St Mary’s Beverley every day from Tuesday to Saturday.
We very much look forward to seeing you soon.
With all good wishes,
Roland and Libby
