The Florestan Festival is an established chamber music festival directed by The Florestan Trio, for the local community in Peasmarsh and Rye which attracts a significant number of visitors to the region each year. We want to expand our education programme and reinstate the Friday orchestral concert.
It ran from 10:00 AM, 6 December 2010 to 10:00 AM, 4 January 2011

Access to high quality classical music, particularly chamber music, is restricted in the rural area of Peasmarsh & Rye, due to a lack of suitable concert venues & organisations to fulfil this need. In addition, primary school access to high quality music education projects is restricted by the small size of local schools & therefore their budgets, & the lack of relevant organisations who can deliver appropriately targeted programmes that meet the high standard that the Florestan Festival offers.
The Florestan Festival will present 8 concerts in 4 days during June 2011, including an orchestral chamber concert, & deliver an education programme which will give Key Stage 2 children (age 7-11) a profound & engaging experience of live classical music, both as audience members, composers & performers. We will extend this programme by including a schools concert, & also a 'Cushion Concert' for the Under 5s to introduce chamber music to young children in an informal atmosphere at an early age.
