Join us for the 12th annual Malcolm Arnold Festival Weekend, a weekend packed with orchestral concerts, recitals, interviews and other exciting events.
Highlights this year will include a performance of Arnold’s rarely played Harmonica Concerto by the brilliant young soloist Philip Achille and a major choral and orchestral work, The Return Of Odysseus, which will be played at the launch concert.
The weekend will also feature a recital of Arnold’s evocative songs by the ever popular Scottish soprano Claire Thompson and an interview with Dame Monica Mason, former Director of the Royal Ballet, on Arnold’s work as a ballet composer.
