Details

King’s Lynn Festival organisers could not stage the high profile 70th Festival they planned for July this year but are determined to mark the milestone by enabling supporters to enjoy top quality music performed in the town’s stunning venues.

The festival’s national reputation for the high quality of its programmes is closely associated with the town’s outstanding historic buildings where concerts are staged. Three venues – the Minster, All Saints Church and the Town Hall - provide the setting for six concerts recorded without audiences to comply with Covid restrictions.

The Festival produced a virtual celebration of its 70th anniversary in the summer, and recently have recorded performances by top-flight musicians in Lynn’s wonderful historic buildings - and will soon stream a series of concerts on-line.

The performances can be viewed through the festival website – www.kingslynnfestival.org.uk – and YouTube. Links are also available on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The third concert, recorded in the Minster, features soprano Kate Semmens who has sung with some of the UK’s finest choirs, and pianist Steven Devine, principal keyboard player with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. They will perform “To the Moon” – three of Schubert’s evocative songs linking the natural world, young love and moonlit mysteries which will be released at 6pm on January 7.

Festival artistic director Ambrose Miller said: “The concerts will offer a veritable cocktail of a programme with wonderful performances by international artists in three splendid historic venues which play a key role in the appeal of Lynn Festival.”
