The Romsey Chamber Music Festival, which started in 2018, is a celebration of chamber music which takes place in late April each year. We welcome international award winning young artists to Romsey for a series of concerts which highlight both well known and lesser known masterpieces of the chamber music repertoire. The Festival aims to make performances of the highest quality accessible to the widest audience and has a broad programme of educational work with local schools.
The 2020 Festival joins the world-wide celebrations of Beethoven’s 250th anniversary. We also continue our journey exploring Bach’s keyboard works transcribed for strings, while our popular family and late night concerts return. We will be welcoming back familiar faces from last year, whilst new award-winning artists for 2020 include cellist Findlay Spence and the Ametza String Quartet.
Autumn 2020 - dates to be confirmed.
Laura Rickard, Artistic Director
NEWS UPDATE - 2 OCTOBER 2020
2020 FESTIVAL NOW CANCELLED
In light of the exponential increase of COVID-19 cases in the UK, RCMF 2020 has now reluctantly been cancelled.
I very much hoped to have been announcing plans for socially distanced concerts in few weeks' time, however as things are getting worse rather than better, it seems irresponsible to bring our community together. All of us very much miss performing, interacting with our audiences and bringing brilliant music to life and we hope to be back very soon!
We will be launching a series of online concerts shortly featuring some brilliant artists, further details will be available soon.
For current ticket holders: we will of course be issuing refunds and we will contact you shortly. If you purchased your tickets from the Romsey Visitors Information Centre you will need to request a refund from them.
Thank you once again for your support. We hope to be back soon!
