Winter into Spring – The Changing Seasons

27th - 28th February 2021

To lift the spirits after what is set to be a rather bleak winter, we’ve brought forward our spring weekend and will present another online-only 'mini festival', with eight events over two days broadcast live from the Holywell Music Room, and a special late-night concert from Merton College Chapel. Highlights will include the great German baritone Dietrich Henschel singing Winterreise, the Irish mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught in a programme of uplifting spring songs, Britten's Winter Words sung by tenor Joshua Ellicott, and RPS Award-winning soprano Natalya Romaniw. Concerts from the Holywell Music Room will all be presented by BBC Radio 3's Petroc Trelawny.
