Welcome to the third year of Music at St.Giles. Our series of concerts is becoming established as a highlight of the calendar with world-class artists performing in the special atmosphere of the library at St.Giles, followed by dinner in the drawing rooms and State Dining Room. In collaboration with Dougie Scarfe from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra we have put together five concerts which are sure to live long in the memory. With two outstanding piano recitalists, a brilliant new generation String Quartet, our very own BSO Soloists, plus the extraordinary brilliance of James Ehnes in solo Bach, this will be music making of the highest order, true to the 400-year tradition of music in the house. With an outstanding set of programmes, each to be accompanied by canapés and a two-course dinner from Beales Gourmet, these concerts will once again be a hot ticket this summer.
