After five festivals we needed to find a venue that would enable us to include Alwyn’s major works including his symphonies and concertos. In the sixth and seventh festivals we are holding concerts at Snape Maltings using the BBC Concert Orchestra on the opening day and we continue the long association with Prometheus Orchestra when the 2016 closing concert will be in Orford. In 2017 there will be two major orchestral concerts at Snape, the first with the BBC Concert Orchestra and the final concert with Prometheus Orchestra. Blythburgh continues as the festival ‘base-camp’ and we look forward to many future chamber music concerts in ‘The Cathedral of the Marshes’.
