Welcome to the fourth year of Music at St.Giles. We are excited to bring you five fantastic programmes, chosen in collaboration with Dougie Scarfe from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. All who came last year commented on the special atmosphere of the concerts set in the beautiful surroundings of St.Giles House.
We open in June with one of the great pianists of our time, Paul Lewis followed in July by the Kungsbacka Trio including the BSO’s very own Principal Cello, Jesper Svedberg. For the autumn concerts we are delighted to host candle-lit performances with the amazing Voces8, the brilliant Nemanja Radulovic and finally with the wonderful Soloists of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.
The performances by these world-class artists are accompanied by canapés and a two-course dinner from Beales Gourmet to complete the experience. We look forward to welcoming you.
