'Hush!' - Papagena - We are privileged to be able to present the five world-class, stunning voices of Papagena. They have been live on BBC Radio 3 and guests on BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour. They have performed to full audiences across the country and at The Three Choirs Festival in 2019. These five voices deserve a full audience again at Festive Classics, as they had such rapturous appreciation on the last two occasions. Even if you think this is not quite your style of music, you cannot avoid being in awe of the flawless perfection of their sound - without props, microphones, fuss or gimmicks.
In advance of the day, a concert programme pdf will be available at www.festiveclassics.co.uk for download but not at Avoncroft
Avoncroft is hoping to be able to open the adjacent Tea Room to sell tea, coffee and light snacks.
As the coronavirus pandemic caused all the 'Music at Lunchtime' events for 2020 to be cancelled,
we are reinstating the concerts for 2021 and a Risk Assessment has been undertaken to ensure the concerts are conducted in a safe manner.
Major safety points are:
Socially-distanced seating for the audience will be laid out.
Doors will be open at each end of the hall to ensure air is flowing.
Lunches and/or drinks will not be provided, as social distancing at tables would be impractical. *
To avoid personal contact, tickets will only be available in advance, and not on the door.
Concert programmes will be available by download before each concert, but not at Avoncroft.
