Here’s what one of our headline artists, Clare Hammond, had to say about the 2015 Festival,
“I just wanted to say what a wonderful time I had at the piano festival this weekend. I was so impressed by the energy of the event and the strong community involvement that you’ve managed to build up. It’s astonishing that you’ve achieved this in such a short space of time!”
The YouTube playlist below includes performances by all our 2015 headline recitalists.
“It was a truly extraordinary weekend of music-making with such a range of performances on offer. I certainly returned home with a great feeling of inspiration and new energy. Thank you for including me – a real joy and privilege to open the concerts.”
