Thursday 7th - Sunday 10th August 2014
Welcome to Southrepps Classical Music Festival's home on the web. Now in its fifth year, the festival runs over the course of a long week-end in high summer in the tranquil village of Southrepps, close to the North Norfolk coast. Each year we offer a varied programme of vocal and instrumental music, from song to opera via choral music and operetta, and from intimate chamber concerts to large-scale orchestral works.
The 2014 Festival
We are delighted to announce this year's festival programme. With seven concerts in four days, we anticipate a wide range of musical delights featuring many of our regular company of artists, the return of some of last seaon's new performers, and more talented musicians fresh to our ears. Alongside the sequence of concerts, we are also proudly launching our inaugural Young Artists' Programme. Under the guidance of Artistic Director Ben Johnson, we are offering gifted students from the country's top conservatoires a week-long course of masterclasses, coaching and lessons, covering all aspects of life as a professional singer, including acting, language coaching and performance psychology - at no financial cost to the participants. This innovation marks a renewal of the festival's commitment to education, and will, we hope, become both a valuable opportunity for young artists and, as a mutually rewarding collaboration, a great enhancement both to the programme of the festival and to its whole purpose.
