LEWES BAROQUEFEST 2021 

After a devastating year for the arts we are so delighted to be able to offer our second Lewes Baroquefest, which will take place from July 21st to July 24th 2021. To be able to bring back live music at last to our wonderful town, which has such a strong vocal and instrumental tradition and plethora of
international musicians, is a true pleasure and honour.  

Events this year include chamber recitals by Alison Bury and Maggie Cole, Purcell's Muse (Ana Maria Rincon, Julia Bishop and Howard Beach with guest Piers Adams), and Lisa Beznosiuk, Neil McLaren and Catherine Rimer; a solo recital by Paula Chateauneuf; a 'concert drama' about the life and music of harpsichordist Violet Gordon-Woodhouse; and two performances of Handel's great Dixit Dominus by the Baroque Collective Singers, director John Hancorn, with guest soloist Piers Adams.

We very much hope to welcome you back to our festival with some of these enticing events!

Warmest wishes,
John and Julia
