Gala Picnic Concert

Ditchley Park Gala Picnic Concert

Saturday June 27th, 7.30pm, Ditchley Park

Tickets – £50 (to include welcome glass of wine)

We are, by popular demand, returning to Ditchley Park for the principal Festival event and hoping for good weather so that everyone can enjoy marvellous music-making and picnic in the beautiful grounds overlooking the lake and slowly setting sun.

It is difficult to imagine a singer who inspires greater affection and admiration than mezzo-soprano Ann Murray DBE and we are especially pleased that Ann will perform for us at Ditchley. Born in Dublin, Ann studied with Frederic Cox at the Royal Manchester College of Music and has since delighted audiences across the world in concert, recital, and operatic roles. Her most recent recording of Brahms & Schumann Lieder was released by Linn Records in February.

The Dean & Chadlington Summer Music Festival Orchestra led by David Juritz will be joined by the wonderful young clarinettist Anna Hashimoto and we will enjoy an evening of instrumental, vocal, and orchestral favourites. Compered by the inimitable Brian Kay, this will be one of the most diverse and exciting programmes that Ditchley has ever seen.
