International soprano, Lesley Garrett headlines the 17th Stratford on Avon Music Festival and will be appearing at the Civic Hall on the last night of the Festival – Sunday 21st October. The Civic Hall also plays host to Jazz legend Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen on Friday 19th October.
This year’s Festival theme is “In Tune with Nature”, and the varied programme really does include something for everyone! The Town Hall lunchtime concerts will once more be a focal point with one or sometimes two, evening concerts each day of the highest quality.
Festival Chairman, Nigel Phillips says: “We are thrilled to welcome international star Lesley Garrett to the Festival for the first time. And the delightful clarinettist, Emma Johnson and supremely talented pianist, Freddy Kempf make a welcome return. Children will enjoy wider than usual musical experiences … and look out too for exciting, short new works by young composers from Birmingham Conservatoire.
