World-class chamber music returns to Devon
Wednesday 17th February 2016
International violinist Tamsin Waley-Cohen will return to Devon for a special concert as part of the Honeymead Ensemble’s May tour, it has been announced.
Tamsin Waley-Cohen, who grew up on nearby Exmoor, will be joined by Emma Parker, Nathaniel Boyd and Rosalind Ventris for a special recital of string quartets in Exeter’s medieval Cathedral on the 4th May. The evening is part of a series of events organised to help preserve and conserve the rich heritage of Exeter Cathedral which was founded in 1050 AD.
The annual Honeymead Festival sees Tamsin joined by a group of chamber musicians to spend a week at her family’s farm, from which the project takes its name.
Paul Courtney, Development Director at the Cathedral, said:
“We have enjoyed welcoming the Honeymead Ensemble (in its various incarnations) to the Cathedral for a number of years. We are extremely grateful to the Waley-Cohen family both for supporting the ongoing work to care for Exeter Cathedral and for their part in bringing chamber music of this quality to Devon for us all to enjoy”.
Tickets for the event, which cost £20 and include drinks and canapés, are now available from 01392 285983 and online
