The 60th anniversary of a popular music festival began with “excellent” vocal and choral performances.
Yesterday (Tuesday) the Grantham Music Festival returned in person after a virtual event last year and will run until March 12.
Held in Christchurch in Finkin Street, this is a special year for the festival as it celebrates its 60th anniversary, with special classes celebrating the 60s through the ages.
Today’s activities at the festival will include elementary school choirs, instrumental groups and an afternoon of elementary musical creation.
In a statement, festival organizers said, “What a great day of vocal and choral music. What a pleasure to see young musicians enjoying performing live again! Thank you.”
You can buy a Christchurch door program for £5 anytime during the festival, with added anniversary features and a larger format.
Tomorrow’s performances will include piano, woodwind and guitar music. Friday will also be the showcase for woodwinds and strings, before vocal and choral performances on Saturday.
Entry per session is £2 and all-day entry is £3. For more information visit: www.granthammusicfestival.co.uk
