China, Estonia and Holland provide artists to 2015 Vale of Glamorgan Festival of Music
The Vale of Glamorgan Festival of Music 2015 will showcase a wealth of British artists alongside exceptional artists from China, Estonia and Holland.
International artists appearing at the Festival include Nieuw Ensemble from Amsterdam and Soloists from China’s National Centre for Performing Arts Orchestra. Continuing the festival’s connection with Estonia and forming a central part of the celebration of the music of Arvo Pärt are the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir and Tallinn Chamber Orchestra who will give individual concerts before joining together for the festival finale at St David’s Hall.
The Festival offers a unique performance experience with venues across the Vale of Glamorgan and Cardiff. As well as the more traditional concert spaces of St David’s Hall, BBC Hoddinott Hall and Dora Stoutzker Hall, performances are also planned at three Penarth venues - All Saints Church, St Augustine’s Church and Penarth Pier Pavilion, at Dyffryn House near St Nicholas and the Norwegian Church in Cardiff Bay. The Festival also returns to St Illtud’s Church in Llantwit Major.
