We had a wonderful start to the season when ANDREW MARRINER, ALASDAIR BEATSON and MICHAEL PETROV gave three lovely concerts earlier in January to raise funds for Concerts in the West. We are so grateful to them for their support.
In February NICHOLAS MULROY, JOHN REID, and WILLIAM LINDLEY gave us three beautiful and unusual concerts with atmospheric moving images projected onto the walls and ceiling. We also had the second performance of Elgar's First Symphony (transcribed for piano only).
In March NICHOLAS MCCARTHY joined us again for inspiring performances and a workshop for young players at the Centre for Young Musicians Taunton, which had them enthralled.

The CONCERTS IN THE WEST series of MINI-TOURS offers a broad spectrum of Classical and Baroque chamber music.
Concerts in the West was launched in 2006 and as with many organisations it has grown in the work that it undertakes and has many plans for the future, particularly in the area of education. We feel that there is an audience for Classical Music of all types, but it has to be nurtured early, even if it takes some years to bring the two together.
Concerts in the West aims to bring talented young musicians to small venues in the West Country in areas that may not have easy access to music of this quality.
Small intensive tours, in Devon, Dorset and Somerset, are arranged for the musicians over a few days, when they have the opportunity to work on new repertoire, or to embed works more fully for upcoming recordings and major concerts elsewhere.
The enthusiasm and skill of these young people is breathtaking and has come about through many years of study (at least to postgraduate level), dedication and hard work. We feel very priviledged to hear them in such intimate settings.
The music played at the concerts is enormously varied and gives local audiences a wonderful opportunity to hear both familiar and unusual works for voice and instrument in many combinations.
You can see details on the individual tour pages and booking details for the concerts can be found on the BOOKING/VENUE INFO page.
