Fishguard International Music Festival Announces 2017 Programme
Taking place at a variety of venues across north Pembrokeshire, the 2017 Fishguard International Music Festival will take place from 24 July – 4 August.
Highlights of this year’s festival include a performance of the complete Bach Brandenburg Concertos by Welsh National Opera Orchestra; a recital by 2015 Leeds International Piano Competition winner, Anna Tsybelva; a welcome return by the Gould Piano Trio performing a new work by Mark Simpson and the first visit to Wales by The Hermes Experiment.
This year’s festival includes two visits by Welsh National Opera Orchestra. In addition to the performance of the complete Bach Brandenburg Concertos at Neaudd y Dderwen, Rhosygilwen (28 July), the orchestra will give a concert at St Davids Cathedral (26 July) with Peter Donohoe as soloist for Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No 1. Further orchestral concerts will be given by the European Union Chamber Orchestra at St Mary’s Church, Haverfordwest (24 July) and the National Youth Orchestra of Wales under the baton of Carlo Rizzi at St Davids Cathedral (4 August).
Pembrokeshire based Luke Harding decided that he would like to raise funds for Paul Sartori recently, adding “Paul Sartori and a couple of other local charities were chosen, as the work you all do in the local community is unquestionable and goes a long way.”
Luke raised money at the ‘Have a Laugh Comedy Club’ charity night at Theatre Gwaun in Fishguard where fundraising efforts from ticket sales and the raffle raised £1300. Paul Sartori Foundation benefitted from his fundraising, along with Shalom and Ward 10 at Withybush Hospital.
