PELLEAS ENSEMBLE IN ILMINSTER - APRIL 2022
Upcoming Concerts All Concerts
The CONCERTS IN THE WEST series of MINI-TOURS offers a broad spectrum of Classical 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.
Short 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.
