Tickets for Roman River Music’s Summer Weekend on 14-16 July are now on sale, offering a chance to experience world-class, classical music in rural Essex.
Yes the Iceni People will be invading the Romans in Essex again, but by invitation this time 🙂
Taking place in the beautiful surroundings of Coggeshall parish church, St Peter ad Vincula, this year’s Summer Weekend features four programmes of French music performed by eight exceptionally talented musicians from around the globe.
The internationally acclaimed tenor, Karim Sulayman, will make his debut at the Summer Weekend, flying in especially from New York for the occasion.
Alongside Karim, Tom Poster, Elena Urioste, the Navarra Quartet and Raphaela Papadakis complete the incredible line-up of musicians.
Orlando Jopling, Artistic Director at Roman River Music, says, “Eight wonderful and charismatic musicians will be performing in one of Essex’s most idyllic villages. It’s a truly unique opportunity to enjoy an evening of French music with some delicious French cheese and wine, in an incredible setting.”
BBC Radio 3 has recognised the quality offering of Roman River Music and will be recording all four Summer Weekend concerts for broadcast.
Tickets are priced from £6 (or just £3 for anyone under 30) and can be purchased online now from romanrivermusic.org.uk. Further information about each of the concerts can also be found on the site.
