Festival Concerts

We are looking forward to the last Festival before we close for redevelopment, and the fantastic series of concerts being organised by the Friends of St Cecilia’s Hall. We have five 3 o’clock concerts lined up:
John Kitchen plays the 1678 Garracino virginal (shown above) on 13 August
‘De La Guitarra’: Stephen Morrison and Gordon Ferries play guitar music by Carulli, Beethoven and others on 16 August
The woodwind and keyboard ensemble ‘Arborea Musica’ celebrate Italians in London using the 1764 Hass harpsichord in its 250th year on 20 August
Ksenia Semenova, winner of the 2013 Volkonsky International Harpsichord Competition, plays Bach, Handel and D Scarlatti on 23 August
The Gilbert Elliott Duo explore repertoire for flute and harpsichord from 18th-century Scotland on 27 August

You can also enjoy the Edinburgh Renaissance Band’s Viol Rackett Show.
