The Minehead Music Festival is 52 years old this year. Each year it has provided a full symphony orchestra with internationally renowned soloists producing four concerts in a week in West Somerset. For the first time, three concerts are being performed at the Regal Theatre.
All concerts feature the Festival Orchestra conducted by Richard Dickins, who, as Director of Music at Imperial College, London and principal conductor at the Royal College of Music Junior Department, is able to ensure the appearance of well established soloists as well as up and coming stars.
The Festival has been described as “Music performed at a level of excellence always amazing to those who hear it, especially for the first time.” “…a most exciting and stimulating experience.”
