Booking opens for 2014 Festival highlights

Sir Roger Norrington will conduct Bach's St John's Passion in King's College Chapel on 27 July, with world-class soloists including James Gilchrist, Lucy Crowe Neal Davies and Lestyn Davies. Meanwhile pianist Joanna MacGregor will perform Bach's complete Goldberg Variations in Trinity College Chapel on 22 July. Booking has also opened for a family concert by the National Youth Music Theatre of The Ragged Child on 29 July. See our Event pages for further details.

The 2014 Festival will mark the 100th Anniversary of the start of World War I, taking as its theme ‘brief lives’. Concerts will feature works by many composers and poets whose lives and talents were cut down by the ‘Great War’. Elgar’s elegaic Spirit of England, written during the War and dedicated ‘to the memory of our glorious men’, will be performed on the first Sunday of the Festival in the now well-established ‘Festival Chorus’ concert, when singers from all over East Anglia come together to perform in King’s Chapel under international choral conductor Tim Brown. Their programme also includes the beautiful Fauré’s Requiem.
Read full details of many more Festival concerts in the press release.
