CONCERTS IN THE WEST
CONCERTS SERIES 2021
TRIO KLEIN delighted audiences in Bridport, Uplyme, Crewkerne and Upwey. If you were unable to attend please read this review.
We look forward to welcoming our audiences in February for another season of beautiful, diverse, challenging music played by wonderful young musicians. You can see who is coming from the list of concerts opposite.
Links to ONLINE BOOKING for many of the concerts will be available by early January, if not sooner. Our website team are working on creating the Online booking element of the Concerts in the West website at the moment. This will be particularly useful when we take concerts to churches and venues without internet access or box office facilities.
COVID - Audiences will not be socially distanced and are not required by law to wear face coverings, although the option is there. The musicians are comfortable with this approach and we hope that our audiences will be too. If you have concerns please let us know. By the time we reach February the rules may well have changed and will adjust our behaviour accordingly.
TO BOOK TICKETS - Information about booking tickets for all venues will be available in early January.
The Menu (Hamburger) icon will take you to other areas of the website.
I have created a page about the Online Series in 2020. Please click HERE

Upcoming Concerts All Concerts
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.
