Offering ten days of a rich variety of music, the Oundle International Festival this year
welcomes pianist William Howard performing new and old love songs, world and folk music from Kabantu, and the European Union Chamber Orchestra with soloist Daniel Lebhart.
The jazz star Atila will perform a retelling of the Nat King Cole story, and more jazz will feature in a performance by the David Gordon Trio of Alexander Scriabin’s Ragtime Band.
An evening of uplifting music from the 1920s and 1930s from the Pasadena Roof Orchestra has already sold out, but hopefuls can add their name to a waiting list.
Family fun and outdoor spectacles include the Oundle Classic Bike Rally, a production of David Walliams’ The Midnight Gang in Barnwell Country Park, and the annual Big Bach Walk through the countryside with rest stops along the way for organ recitals in a celebration of the completion of Bach’s Orgelbüchlein.
The festival concludes with the Party at the Wharf, headlined by Toploader and supported by
breakthrough band Austin Gold.
