CONCERTS IN THE WEST
CONCERTS SERIES 2021
 


Our plans are constantly changing due to CV19. We are now planning to restart live concerts in MAY 2021, which is exciting and we hope that we can make it happen. There are a few changes to the season. The Solem Quartet will come in 2022 as will Savitri Grier and Richard Uttley. The May tour in 2021 will now be TRIO KLEIN. The November dates are still to be confirmed. Other venues in the tours will be confirmed later.
 
Individual concert pages will be available on this website once the tours are finalised for the season.

I will be sending out enews about new CD releases and musical projects from our musicians. In spite of severe restrictions they have managed to record during the last year, which is wonderful.

2020 SEASON
 
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.

2019 season - TRIO SŌRA, SARA DEBORAH & FRIENDS, MĒLA GUITAR QUARTET, ALASDAIR BEATSON & ELISSA CASSINI, MORIARTY WINDS, CLARE HAMMOND,
EUSEBIUS QUARTET, NATHANIEL BOYD & SIMON LANE, CONSONE QUARTET and the RUISI QUARTET.

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.
