Welcome from our Artistic Directors…

Kate and Lucy

This is the seventh year of the Ironstone Chamber Music Festival held in the wonderful Ironstone village of Horley. Last year in 2017 we invited three young and upcoming players, namely Maria Cecilia Mañoz, a flautist from Argentina, Pablo Hernán Benedí, violinist from Spain and Oliver Wass, gold medallist Harpist from the Guildhall school of music in London.

The concerts this year are arranged on Friday 7th & Saturday 8th September, lunchtime and evening on the 8th. This year’s theme will be chamber music for strings and will include a sextet and two octets for those instruments.

Invited musicians are virtuoso cellist Richard Lester, Simon Blendis who until recently was violinist with the Schubert Ensemble, three members of the Doric String Quartet and not least Hannah Shaw, viola player who played here in 2016.

We look forward to giving you a very warm welcome in September.
