Six professional concerts in the beautiful surroundings of Winchester College.

Welcom e

Winchester College is delighted

to present this series of public

concerts for the academic year

2017/18. Following the recent

refurbishment of New Hall, and

the acquisition of the wonderful

new Steinway D concert grand

piano, the College is keen once

again to provide a stage for

some of our greatest musicians.

The six concerts provide a wide range of music

performed by some of the UK?s leading soloists

and ensembles. Connections with Winchester

College abound, with three former pupils among

the musicians, and works by a former pupil and

previous College organist.

We hope you will enjoy this varied programme of

concerts, and we are happy to offer a discounted

ticket for the entire series. I would like to thank the

College for the chance to curate this series, and

look forward to future seasons of the Visiting Artist

Series. As a pupil at the school in the late '70s, I

was inspired by hearing so many wonderful

musicians perform, such as James Galway, Radu

Lupu, Heinz Holliger, John Williams, Janet Baker,

and The King's Singers. Such concerts were a

formative experience for me, and having spent

over 25 years on the road with The King?s Singers, I

am delighted now to return to the College as a

member of the vocal staff and as curator of this

Visiting Artist Series. I would welcome any

suggestions from our audience, either in person at

the concerts, or via email - concerts@wincoll.ac.uk
