Edington Arts 2022
YOUR CHANCE TO HEAR ONE OF THE GREAT PIANISTS OF HIS GENERATION
We’ve been waiting a long time for this, but finally, the extraordinarily talented and charismatic pianist Martin James Bartlett will be performing in Edington Priory Church on Saturday 24th June at 7.30pm.
Having won the BBC Young Musicians competition in 2014 at the tender age of 18, he has gone on to fulfil the promise of a glittering career, performing all over Europe and making a number of recordings which have received brilliant reviews. He combines flawless technique, adventurous and wide-ranging musical tastes, and huge emotional depth to produce performances which are remarkable on many levels.
His programme for us is mostly, but not exclusively, French: Couperin, Debussy, Rameau and Ravel, interspersed with Haydn and Schumann/Liszt. This will make for a lovely concert of delicate and summery music.
Full details are on the Edington Arts website, and you can secure your tickets, still at 2014 prices, NOW by ringing Chrissy on 01380 831256 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org; £20/15/10, and 18 and unders come free.

Advent Concert: Choir of Merton College Oxford
Saturday 10th December
Benjamin Nicholas returns to Edington Priory Church with his superb mixed voice chapel choir. His was the first Advent Concert we hosted back in 2015; since then under his direction successive generations of choral scholars have made Merton one of the pre-eminent Oxbridge chapel choirs. Numerous prestigious broadcasts, recordings and recitals have all been positively reviewed.
Detailed Box Office information and anything else we can tell you will be uploaded onto our website, www.edingtonarts.org, as soon as we have a confirmed plan.
