Frinton Festival 25th – 28th May 2018

Hello everyone,

I am delighted to let you know that tickets for this year’s Frinton Festival go on sale today. I hope you will join us over the bank holiday weekend and look forward to seeing you at one or more concerts.

On Saturday 26th May you can hear Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” quartet together with Schumann’s second string quartet and a suite for solo cello by Bach in the intimate setting of All Saints’ Church across the fields in Great Holland. FREE tickets for those aged 8-25 are available for this concert thanks to the support of the CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust.

Sunday 27th May sees the world premiere of a striking work written especially for the Barbican Piano Trio by Joseph Phibbs. This will be performed between piano trios by Schumann and Schubert in Voysey’s “Homestead”.

Bank Holiday Monday 28th May features the eagerly awaited return of The Massive Violins to Frinton’s Tennis Club. Ticket holders can enjoy a free tasting of Mr.Wheeler’s wines before the concert.

As always, ticketholders can enjoy free programmes and a complimentary glass of wine in the interval of each concert.

If you book for one or more of the above then you are welcome to book for these two concerts free of charge:

The world premiere of The Remarkable Tale of Prince Unexpected by Joseph Phibbs and storyteller Kevin Graal at St. Mary’s Parish Church at tea-time on Friday 25th May. The Barbican Piano Trio and Kevin Graal present a magical hour of music and folk tales, followed by tea and cakes for the whole audience. The performers are leading workshops in Frinton Primary School, Hamford Primary Academy and Rolph CofE Primary School and schoolchildren are warmly invited to this concert, along with their families and friends.

On Saturday 26th May pianist James Kirby will give a one hour piano recital at 11am featuring music by Schubert and Melanie Daiken. There will be a retiring collection to support the Frinton Festival.

If you would like to take part, you are invited to sing in the Frinton Festival Evensong at St. Mary’s on Sunday 27th May. If you prefer not to sing, come and join the congregation and enjoy the Service which will feature beautiful music by Schubert, Stanford, Stainer and John Rutter.
