Please note the change to the previously advertised time for this event.
Lara Melda will now be performing on Saturday 31 July at 12noon in St Mary's Church.
The first scholarship holder in 2015 under the Imogen Cooper Music Trust, Lara Melda won the BBC Young Musician 2010 competition, performing Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No. 2 in the final round with Vasily Petrenko and the BBC National Orchestra of Wales in Cardiff. In the year that her mentor appears twice in concert at the festival, we are delighted to welcome an extraordinary talent to St Mary’s Church playing repertoire by two piano greats, Frederick Chopin and Serge Rachmaninov.
