It gives me great pleasure to invite you to Millfield Music School’s 2018-19 International Concert Series which welcomes some of the world’s most talented and exciting musicians to the stunning surroundings of the Johnson Hall.
Opening the season is the brilliantly entertaining Harry the Piano. Renowned for his world-class improvisation skills, prepare your musical requests and watch Harry remodel your favourite numbers into a Rachmaninov concerto, Bach fugue or TV sitcom theme. He can play anything, anywhere, at any time. Phenomenally talented, charming and musically unique, you’ll love him! In the spring term, I am overjoyed to welcome my fellow Chetham’s alumni, Huw Wiggin, to perform as part of two award-winning ensembles, the Wiggin-Wass Sax and Harp Duo and the Ferio Saxophone Quartet. What a coup to be able to host both ensembles within one concert! Their performance precision, tonal expression and ensemble brilliance is simply astounding. To finish the year, we are exceptionally fortunate to host the world-famous King’s-Singers in what will be one of the shows of the decade. As ambassadors for musical excellence, they are consistently welcomed on the world’s greatest stages and, for this one-off occasion, will grace the Johnson Hall for what will be a spectacularly fun evening of musical versatility and virtuosity.
I hope you will join us for this once-in-a-lifetime season of music making. Save the dates and book your tickets early! Tickets are available for each concert, or a subscription can be purchased for all three. We are delighted to bring the world’s finest musical acts to Somerset and very much look forward to welcoming you to Millfield this year.
