Renowned classical musicians announce new festival in Bromley
Benjamin Grosvenor, Raja Halder and Hyeyoon Park are proud to launch Bromley and Beckenham International Music Festival, a new festival bringing world-class classical music to the heart of Bromley 17th – 20th September 2020.
Benjamin Grosvenor comments: “The Covid-19 crisis has been a daunting time for everyone. Those working in the performing arts have been hit by widespread cancellations and months of seclusion and uncertainty. As three musicians based in Bromley, we were united in our desire to create something positive out of this difficult experience and build something long-lasting for the local community. Through this, the festival was born.
We hope that this will become an annual festival that will bring world-class music to Bromley and Beckenham, which in themselves are vibrant centres and not merely off-shoots of a larger city. We hope that you will join us on this journey, and celebrate the return of live-music making.”
The first Bromley and Beckenham International Music Festival will take place from 17th-20th September 2020. All concerts will be held at St Peter and St Paul’s Church, a beautiful parish church in the heart of Bromley whose central tower dates back to the 14th century.
The programme includes four socially-distanced chamber concerts with guest artists including Tomo Keller, Timothy Ridout, Leon Bosch, David Cohen, and festival Co-Founders Raja Halder, Benjamin Grosvenor and Hyeyoon Park.
