Performing at Cratfield
Over the last 30 years, Concerts at Cratfield has been privileged to welcome some of the finest musicians from the UK and beyond. First and foremost we specialise in chamber music, with string quartets being firm favourites, followed by piano duos, trios and quartets. We are also pleased to have occasional baroque concerts, song recitals and piano recitals. Repertoire generally ranges over the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries and we like to profile contemporary composers and young artists.
Cratfield is a small village in deepest rural Suffolk and the concerts are held in St Mary’s Church, a medieval building with a fine acoustic set in a delightful country churchyard. We have a regular audience of music enthusiasts who also like the opportunity of meeting the artists as well as listening to them play. What could be better on a Sunday afternoon?
With just six concerts a year and a backlist of artists who want to come and those who want to come again, we are nevertheless always pleased to hear from new artists who would like to join us to perform for Concerts at Cratfield. Please contact Peter Baker, Concert Organiser, by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
