Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival 25-28 June

Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival starts its 2015 programme on 25 June and runs through to 28 June with a series of concerts all at the lovely Peasmarsh church except 8pm Friday 26 June when the performance is at St Mary's Church Rye.

Once again violinist Anthony Marwood and cellist Richard Richard Lester have put together a programme of romantic and classical music to please and delight all tastes, including work from the young English composer Huw Watkins. And over the packed four days they will be joined by friends - musicians from around the whole World.

Don Giovanni - the 2015 Opera

Rye Arts Festival is providing two performances of this year's opera Don Giovanni. Festival goers will be able to choose between fully staged performances on the opening Saturday 12 Sep and the closing Saturday 26 Sep... or go to both! Conductor/director Alistair Kitchen is back again after his triumphal la Traviata last year. And while the baritone Nicholas Morton, as Don Giovanni, might be new to the Rye audience we will be welcoming back last year's heroine the superb Icelandic soprano Rannveig Karradotir as Donna Anna.
