West Meon Music Festival 2021

We will hopefully present this programme with few changes, but if the COVID-19 crisis is still affecting indoor concerts this September we may have to change the programme, venues or concert lengths to comply with safety regulations.
All our wonderful guests are confirmed for the 2021 festival and we will endeavour to keep most of the repertoire.


The Primrose Piano Quartet are delighted to celebrate the Festival’s tenth anniversary year with extra concerts and even more exciting programmes and guests featuring: Michael Collins, Stephen Stirling, Jonathan Stone and Kirsten Jenson as well as three prizewinning young musicians Roman Kosyakov, Laura Snowden and Maxim Calver.
