The popular Pinner Music Festival returns once again next month with a range of classical concerts. The event will be the 51st version of the festival to be staged and will take take place between June 6 and 11 against the backdrop of Pinner’s parish church, a building with a fine acoustic. Pinner Music Festival’s Director, Professor Anthony Pinching, told My Pinner and Hatch End News: “Pinner Music Festival 2016 brings a mix of the familiar and the unfamiliar, the old and the new – both in content and format – to bring fine music to our local area, and to raise funds for New Hope, a Watford-based charity for the Homeless. “This year, we have a terrific range of music in seven concerts – including choral works, song and chamber music, performed by established artists, the Fibonacci Sequence, and others, together with a concert of south Indian Carnatic Music, introduced by one of its finest and most charismatic exponents, Jyotsna Srikanth. “A novel and special experience will be to hear Olivier Messiaen’s beautiful and meditative Quartet for the End of Time by candlelight, some 75 years after it was written and performed – in a concentration camp. “One new feature is a focus on two anniversary composers – Arthur Bliss (125) and Harrow-born Rebecca Clarke (130) – both of whom composed lovely works in a variety of forms. An expert seminar at the outset of the Festival introduces them and their works.” For more information about all the events that make up this year’s Pinner Music Festival, go to
