“Women of Note”

The Esterhazy Singers were formed in 1971 and are based in London.  They are an amateur choir rehearsing and performing to high professional standards.  The music of Haydn is central to the choir’s repertoire but it also tackles a wide range of styles from Renaissance polyphony to ambitious contemporary choral music.

Their Swalcliffe Concert will present five centuries of works by women composers.

“Boldwood” in concert

Boldwood will take us back to the 18th Century when traditional and classical music happily co-existed and inspired each other to produce rich, fascinating and lively instrumental music.  This glorious period in our musical history provides Boldwood with the core of its repertoire, much of which was discovered in little-known publications and hand-written manuscripts.  “Blast from the Past” described Boldwood as 'the most exciting band playing English music at the moment'.

Tickets will be available in mid September at www.swalcliffe.org

The Swalcliffe Concerts aim to offer a rich mix of musical styles, enhanced by the wonderful acoustics of St Peter and St Paul, Swalcliffe.  The concerts will raise funds for the church itself and other village projects and charities supported by the Swalcliffe Village Fund.

We have more exciting and varied performances lined up for the future so please look out for further announcements on this page.

Car parking will usually be provided through the kindness of Swalcliffe Park School which is a short walk from the Church, please look out for directions signs and follow the directions of parking stewards as you approach the venue.

The church now has a wonderful new toilet to disabled standards and a small café which should be in operation for concerts serving hot and cold beverages.  The bar of the Stags Head, just across the road, is recommended for those who seek a good “bar’s rest” before or after the performance.

Unassisted disabled access to the church is very difficult and up a flight of stone steps, so if you have special access needs please give advance notice so that we can be ready with suitable assistance for you.
