About the festival 

We are excited to be presenting Hastings Chamber Music Festival, held in association with the Early Music Festival. Our programmes will be offering a wider range of repertoire than in previous years. Concerts will be in Christchurch and Kino Teatr. At the heart of the Festival is, as ever, the desire to bring together the highest calibre musicians for performances of some of the most deeply expressive music. Artistic director, violinist Jane Gordon, has invited a wonderful line up of international musicians for concerts with music from the baroque era to the present day. We will also be including talks, ‘artist in conversation’ events, and opportunities to meet the players after the concerts.

“Inspired by the music we love and the art of live performance, I want to engage our listeners to contemplate the significance and relevance the Arts can hold in our culture today. We aim to give music a platform to connect to wider topics relevant to today’s cultural and political landscape.” – Jane Gordon, artistic director
