Building on the success of the last four years, Winchelsea Arts unveils an exciting programme for the year ahead.

Stephanie Gurga and Marcio da Silva

Among those who will be giving concerts this season is Marcio da Silva whose programme will include Schumann’s Dichterliebe. Marcio is well known to many locally as the inspirational director of the Hastings Philharmonic. For us he will be singing rather than conducting and will be accompanied by American pianist Stephanie Gurga.

Niel du Preez

From a highly successful appearance in Season 3, South African pianist Niel du Preez returns in October and, in a new departure, the season ends next spring with an evening of Jazz performed by young clarinettist Charlie Watkins and his band, That’s a Peculiar.

There are six concerts in all in the season and all the details are in the new Arts brochure which you will find in various locations including St Thomas’ Church and Winchelsea Farm Kitchen. Subscriptions are available for £90 for the whole season – a saving of £20 on individual tickets for each separate concert. Full information on performers and repertoire, and on how to get tickets are on the Winchelsea Arts website. The site also allows you to sign up for a regular email newsletter giving all the latest Winchelsea Arts news.
