A very warm welcome to the 2016 Pinner Music Festival, which will run from June 6th to June 11th.

The festival offers a feast of music in 7 concerts  – choral, song & chamber music, as well as Carnatic Music – plus two seminars for those who want to know a bit more.

We are featuring two Anniversary composers, Arthur Bliss (125) and Harrow-born Rebecca Clarke (130) and have commissioned a new work for solo violin by Cornish composer, Russell Pascoe. These works will feature alongside classics by Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven and Schumann, and notable works by Messiaen, Frank Bridge, John Rutter and Arvo Pärt, amongst others.

Generously supported by THE BLISS TRUST & The Rebecca Clarke Society

Tickets on sale now, with full booking information available on our 'Tickets' page.

Please keep your diary clear for Festival week, so that you can attend as many events as possible.

This year, a new PMF committee has taken over the mantle from Michael Turvey (now our President) and colleagues, who signed off with a very special 50th Festival in 2015. We are part of the community activities of Pinner Parish Church, where the concerts are all held. Whilst we have retained many familiar features from Pinner Music Festivals of the recent past, we have created some fresh ones too, which we hope that you will sample and enjoy.

I look forward to seeing you at our concerts and seminars. Meanwhile, we've launched a poster design competition for children aged 4 to 11. You'll find competition details here.

Very Best Wishes,
