Southwell Music Festival offers a fresh, exciting programme




With grand symphonies, intimate chamber music, celebratory choral classics and soulful folk music, Southwell Music festival, which begins today, has something for everyone.

With the help of a wonderful ensemble of leading professional singers and players from across the UK and overseas, organisers strive to bring the very best music to the town.

The festival’s founder and artistic director, Marcus Farnsworth, said: “Each year we aim to give our audiences something fresh and unexpected, and I am particularly excited by this year’s festival firsts ­— from a spectacular symphony concert presenting the drama and beauty of Mendelssohn and Mahler to late-night folk in the minster, with renowned Scottish fiddler Aidan O’Rourke and award-winning pianist, organist and improviser, Kit Downes.”
