Dear music lover

I will be reopening the 27th International Concert Series in the Autumn of 2021. I am in the process of confirming the details, but please put the following dates in your diaries:

Please keep an eye on my website for further details. If you are on my mailing list, programme details will be sent to you in due course.

I trust you are keeping safe and well and look forward to bringing some beautiful music into your lives again soon.

Musical felicitations


Throughout the past 23 years, the International Concert Series has been and still is my raison d’etre. It is a huge privilege promoting wonderful musicians from across the world, and many have become my friends. Bringing performers and audiences together through music creates a frisson of excitement and achievement.

Every 5 years I have commissioned West Country composers e.g. Clive Jenkins, Marsha Head, Terence Higgins and Phillip Buttall, to write a special piece in celebration of the concert series. Next year, 2018, will be the 25th anniversary and new compositions are already on the drawing board.

Every 2 years, the Plymouth Music Accord hold auditions for aspiring young people hoping to progress to a musical career. As a result, I have given several successful candidates their first professional concert.

A handful of performers from my concerts past, present and future are shown in the photo set on this page.
