Abingdon Music Festival 2017
'A festival with a difference - not a competition but a workshop' (Paul Harris)
The twentieth Abingdon Music Festival 2017 takes place this year from 28th to 30th April in the School of St Helen & St Katharine. Friday evening 6.00 pm to 10.00 pm, Saturday 9.00 am to 10.00 pm, Sunday 9.00 am to lunchtime.
Sunday 30th evening 7.00 pm is a concert performance.
This is regularly described as a really friendly and informative festival, its 'difference' meaning that after every performance an experienced adjudicator gives instant comments and helpful advice. Audiences appreciate hearing these assessments immediately instead of having to wait until the end of the class, and performers enjoy the chance to work on their pieces with an experienced adjudicator. The only element of competition is that each adjudicator is invited to recommend items for performance at the final Sunday evening concert. Details of classes can be found on the web site www.abmusfest.org.uk where the online entry form can be accessed, or if you prefer, a downloadable entry form. The closing date for entries is 1st March.
