The Mikado review and photos

Despite very poor weather leading up to Saturday, and a downpour an hour before the gates were due to open, the sun shone from 5pm onwards and we had a very successful opera. The singing, orchestra and acting were excellent, and the lighting was the best I think I’ve seen. There’s a great review of it […]

Photos of the Opera at Bayham

I am in the process of sending out flyers and emails to advertise The Mikado at Bayham, and it occurred to me that the one little photo doesn’t really do the Abbey justice. As those of you who have been to an opera at Bayham know, it really is a wonderful place to stage a […]

Helen Lacey concert review

Helen Lacey Concert Review Much of the usual LMF audience comes from outside of Lamberhurst, but on Friday night, this was very different. The majority of the guests seemed to be from the Village and it was quite evident that the whole community had really decided to support this concert. Helen Lacey has sung in St Mary’s […]

Catrin Finch concert review

Catrin Finch concert review I’m in my second year of running the Lamberhurst Music Festival, and this is definitely one of the best concerts I’ve staged. The music, the performance and the performer were all excellent. Catrin’s programme was exceptional and many people approached me at the interval and commented on this. I think that they […]

Catrin Finch plays Karl Jenkins’ ‘Palladio’

Catrin Finch – Palladio Catrin Finch’s concert is on the 21st April 2017 and I’ve been researching her programme and came across a wonderful performance she gave, back in 2004, of Karl Jenkins’ Palladio.

Tasmin Little At St Mary’s school

Tasmin Little’s visit to St Mary’s School and St Mary’s Church was a wonderful experience for the children and a superb occasion for the evening audience. Arriving at the school at 2.30pm she was shown into the school hall and began to tune up. Even at this early point, I could tell that the children […]

Tasmin Little – 20th January concert review

The concert began with a very short Allegro by Telemann which although seemed to be over almost before it had begun, was a wonderful start to the concert as it teased the audience. Tasmin’s virtuosity could clearly be seen in this short piece, and the sound and tone of her violin in St Mary’s was […]

Tasmin learnt to read music at the age of six, and attended the Yehudi Menuhin School until she was 18. He first professional performance as a soloist was with the The Hallé Orchestra […]
