The finale of the first festival is nothing short of exceptional. Dumfries House, the stunning 18th century Adams mansion saved for the nation in 2007 by a consortium led by HRH The Prince of Wales, provides a beautiful setting for a world class concert. Our Patron Nicola Benedetti, singers from internationally renowned ensemble The Sixteen, leading musician and recording artist Elizabeth Kenny and award winning quintet Pure Brass will perform old and new music, including three world premieres, in three short recitals in three different rooms.
Due to the nature and experience of promenade performance, the audience will stand during part of the concert, however seating can be provided if necessary. Please inform the Box Office if any member of your party requires a seat. Seats will be placed at the sides of the performing space, and may result in a limited view.
PLEASE NOTE THAT BOTH PERFORMANCES ARE SOLD OUT AND THE WAITING LIST IS FULL.
