Howden Minster Concerts Moving Online
Welcome to our news page, where we'll be keeping you up to date with all the latest information about concerts at Howden Minster.
It's been a challenging few months as, like all other venues across the country, we had to cancel our planned April, May and June concerts due to the spread of Covid-19. We know that this has disappointed performers and audiences alike and we thank you for your patience as we have tried to find a way to navigate the strange new waters that we find ourselves in!
We are delighted to announce that, as of July 2020, we will be going ahead with a slightly modified series of organ and lunchtime concerts (sadly the evening concerts which showcase large groups of performers are still on hold). Although it is not currently safe for us to welcome audiences back in person, we will be filming the rest of this year's concerts at Howden Minster using state of the art equipment and presenting them online for your viewing pleasure. So sit back in the comfort of your own home and enjoy front row seats for some wonderful new performances!
Our first new concert, which will be broadcast online on Monday 27 July at 1.00pm, is a special addition to our lunchtime series and will feature pianist Graziana Presicce:
You can read more here about Graziana including details of her programme, which includes Debussy's Clair de lune, Janáček's In the Mists and Poulenc's Napoli Suite, as well as works by Brahms, Albeniz and Suchoň.
