Elmore Chamber Music Festival
The Elmore Chamber Music Festival is held in the historic Elmore Church, situated near the banks of the River Severn, in the heart of Gloucestershire.
The Festival consists of a weekend of classical chamber music performances. It was first launched in the summer of 2020, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic and the government restrictions on all live performances.
Then a last-minute change to government policy meant that the ECMF was forced to relocate from Elmore Church to an alternative outdoor venue. Less than two days before the opening performance, thanks to the amazing adaptability and creative skills of the musicians and with huge support from the local community, a barn with a field was procured, a stage built, and all the ticket holders notified.
Despite all major setbacks, the ECMF was able to successfully take place. Thankfully, the weather was perfect, and all three concerts were sold out.
Building upon this success, we now look forward to presenting the 2021 Elmore Chamber Music Festival.
The opening night concert will feature the award-winning Freeman String Quartet from the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester alongside the U.K.'s leading double bass soloist Toby Hughes and Cellist Leo Melvin.
The festival will also include a recital by international organ scholar Jed Hughes and we are very excited to have cellist Petr Prauce joining us to perform alongside the Freeman String Quartet in our closing concert.
Additional performances will be announced over the coming months.
