The pandemic meant that the annual festival had to be cancelled in 2020 for the first time since it was launched in 2014. But the 2021 Festival is planned to start on 12th November.
The internationally celebrated Villiers string quartet who have become a firm favourite in previous festivals are looking forward to bringing the 2021 festival to a close of Sunday 21st November.
Other exciting concerts details will be announced nearer the time when we know what the booking and seating arrangements might be.
Meanwhile the Delphi Trust is well aware of the hardship being suffered by many in our large network of musicians: so the Trust has launched its Home to Home Project. This matches a composer (paid to write a new work at home) to a performer (paid to record the new work at home) whilst venues remain closed and income from live performances is so restricted.
The pre-pilot programme demonstrating what is possible included this from two of the festival's favourite artists: violinist Tamaki Higachi and violist Carmen Flores. https://youtu.be/4tqCKYRjBWA
Shoppers with Amazon can nominate the Delphi Trust to receive small contributions (that add up eventually) using https://smile.amazon.co.uk/ch/1075043-0 as the shop entrance
