Unfortunately, because of the Corona virus situation, we have had to postpone the start of our 2020-21 season. However, we are currently planning to begin our season in January 2021 with a concert by the Tippett String Quartet, who will be joined by young pianist, Emma Abbate, to play piano quintets by Stephen Dodgson and Schumann in a programme that includes a string quartet by Mendelssohn.
Next, after several years since our last vocal recital we have rising star, Nick Pritchard (tenor), and Ian Tindale (piano), performing song cycles by Beethoven and Schubert.
Then, we have flautist, Emma Halman, with the Eblana String Trio in a programme spanning more than three centuries.
Finally, in the year of Beethoven's 250th birthday celebrations, the Marmen String Quartet will play one of Beethoven's late quartets: the Quartet in C sharp minor, opus 131, as well as quartets by Haydn and Debussy.
All concerts take place in the Ship Theatre.
