LEWES FESTIVAL OF SONG
Patron: Mark Padmore
Welcome to our song festival, a celebration of art-song which takes place in St. Anne’s Church in Lewes every July.
NEXT YEAR'S THE FESTIVAL RUNS FROM FRIDAY 1ST TO SUNDAY 3RD JULY 2022.
Well done on putting on yet another truly fantastic festival, beautifully planned and full of very special moments.
Gorgeous programming, as usual - thought-provoking, mind-expanding, lovely!
The programming & the performances are very special.
The best ever song festival – so many talents and so much inspiring music on display. It was all world class, but if I had to choose a favourite from the whole thing it would be my personal love of the emotional Finzi settings of Hardy in James Newby’s wonderfully varied and insightful evening – what a talent! Or Alison Rose’s “Illuminations” – another favourite piece but in a spectacular performance with the Corelli – and wasn’t the tenor good! You should be very proud and pleased to bring all this to Lewes.
What a treat yesterday’s lunchtime concert was. I can’t thank you enough. Fabulous repertoire – most of which I didn’t know – beautifully played and sung.
What a huge success I thought the Festival was. Really interesting programmes and such well-chosen, brilliant young players. It was all delightful and last night’s ‘Illuminations’ was absolutely electrifying.
