Music At Wentworth Villa 2016 – 2017

Welcome to the first full season of Music At Wentworth Villa. We hope you will join us for the entire series of six outstanding concerts. We are making available all six concerts for the price of five and hope you will take advantage of this special offer.

All our performers are established international musicians. The programs comprise approximately one hour of music, which the artists will introduce during the concerts. We hope to create an intimate and informative series, where audience members really connect with the music and feel a part of the performance.

Each concert will include a 25 minute interval in which audience members will be able to enjoy a glass of wine and will have the opportunity to explore the ground floor of the beautifully renovated Wentworth Villa. After the concerts there will also be an opportunity to meet the artists and ask any questions you may have about the music.

Please join us for this exciting series. The recital space has comfortable seating for 75-85 people so do not delay if you wish to attend. At our inaugural recital by pianist Sara Davis Buechner we had a full house and a waiting list. Order now online to secure your seat.

We look forward to welcoming you to Music At Wentworth Villa,
Sarah Fryer, Artistic Director
