Meads Musical Festival starts

THE first concert in the Meads Music Festival will take place at All Saints Chapel on May 1.

The concert will take place at 3pm and is a recital by baritone Christopher Maltman.

Mr Maltman has just appeared in a new film version of Don Giovanni and is currently rehearsing in Paris for a new production of Marriage of Figaro.

He will leave Paris to come to Eastbourne to perform on Sunday, May 1.

David Irvine, one of the organisers, said, “It is such a great opportunity for music lovers in Eastbourne to hear a singer of this calibre.

“The Festival continues each Sunday with a wealth of musical talent.

“This series of concerts is the most exciting thing to have happened in Eastbourne from a classical music perspective, since the residency of the London Philharmonic Orchestra.”
