Barnes composer, Stephen Dodgson has been much celebrated at the festival. Over the next two years we celebrate two major anniversaries - the 10th anniversary of his death in 2013 and the centenary of his birth in 2024.
Some of his most interesting and alluring music can be found in his choral music. In preparation for the 100th anniversary celebrations next March, the Stephen Dodgson Charitable Trust will be launching a yearlong Choral Project encouraging choirs and vocal groups from around the world to discover and perform this amazing music.
Join us for the launch of this exciting project and a taster of the world of Stephen’s Choral Music performed by the professional Barnes Festival Consort and some of London’s leading Chamber Choirs.
