THIS IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY to hear one of our country’s leading musicians. Madeleine Mitchell has given recitals and played concertos with major orchestras all over the world.
Her acclaimed recordings include nominations for Grammy and BBC Music Awards, Classic FM’s featured CD, BBC Music’s CD of the Month. Encouraged by Yehudi Menuhin she devised the Red Violin Festival, the first international, eclectic celebration of the fiddle across the
arts and she will be directing the Red Violin throughout Leeds in May 2023 as part of the European City of Culture.
“One of Britain’s liveliest musical forces and foremost violinists.”
Madeleine will be joined tonight by Professor Martin Butler, giving us a chance to meet Uckfield Music Club’s new president. Composer, pianist, and Emeritus Professor of Music at Sussex University, Martin was first ever composer-in- residence at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton, New Jersey.
