Next month Brighton and Seaspray will be looking forward to seeing the Brighton Early Music Festival (22nd October to 7th November) return. This festival celebrates the theme of Ritual, with 25 events exploring courtship, marriage, belief, death and rites of the seasons.
Described by BBC Radio 3 as ‘nothing if not inventive’, the festival will be a delight for the senses.
The organisers revel in throwing out the classical concert rule book. The Festival’s new three year programme, Concertmakers, aims to redesign and take the classical music concert format to new places. Set in Brighton’s most stunning buildings, many concerts combine folk, world and the music of the past with drama and lighting.
Last year nearly 2000 people attended Brighton Early Music Festival events during the White Night all night cultural festival. This year Brighton Early Music Festival hopes to build on last year’s success. From 11pm on Saturday 30th October to 2am on Sunday 31st October, outstanding young ensembles who have been selected by audition by the festival will perform from different positions around St Bartholomew’s church with the audience moving around the building freely from performance to performance.
