BROCKWOOD PARK SCHOOL
This year, in place of our regular Open Day events we have been hosting live online Q&A sessions. Those present from Brockwood Park include the Principal, Pastoral and Curriculum Staff, Admissions Manager and also several students, all happy to answer any questions about the School and education we provide. Our next Q&A event will be held in September and further details will be posted here shortly.
For those interested parents and students unable to attend an Open Morning, the school welcomes visits at other times. Tours can also be arranged for those with a particular interest in Krishnamurti’s approach to education. The school is only open to visitors during term time and all visits need to be arranged in advance through the School Office.
INTIMATE, WORLD-CLASS CHAMBER MUSIC IN HAMPSHIRE
Brockwood Park Concert Series 2019-20
***Due to Covid-19 all forthcoming events are postponed or cancelled until further notice.***
Brockwood Park has long been home to world-class music making, with visiting artists that have included Nicola Benedetti, Yaltah Menuhin, Leonid Gorokhov, among many others. Set in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, our concerts are held in an intimate space with a spacious acoustic and a unique atmosphere of familial warmth and focussed listening — a setting long cherished by artists and audiences alike.
The three concerts this season include a wide range of music from some of the best-loved classics to rarely heard masterworks. Each concert will be preceded by a short pre-concert talk, where the artistic director will explore and demonstrate some of the fascinating historical and musical background that will bring you closer to the music on the programme.
Tea and homemade cakes are served at the interval. More information available at brockwoodconcertseries.com
By PRACH BOONDISKULCHOK — ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
As a longtime associate of Brockwood Park, I am honoured to be curating this series and am pleased to welcome you to the season of 2019-20. As we begin the season that run into the “big” year of 2020 — a new decade, a 250th anniversary of Beethoven, and a year of many global changes to come — I am pleased to present a series that celebrate the revolutionary spirit and experimentation. While Beethoven features in each programme, the contrasting themes of contradiction and innovation take us through music spanning some three-hundread years. I am especially pleased to welcome new artists to the series, international stars in their fields: Liam Byrne on the rare viola da gamba, and the widely acclaimed Castalian String Quartet.
Each concert will be preceded by a short pre-concert talk where I will explore some of the fascinating historical and musical background that will bring you closer to the music on the programme. Not a ‘lecture’ as such, but more an invitation to perceive music like musicians.
Concerts at Brockwood Park are not ticketed, however, there is a suggested donation of £15. This donation will go to Brockwood Park School’s Music Scholarship Fund, which is used to support music lessons for students with financial limitations.
I hope that you will enjoy these concerts as much as I have over the years, and I look forward to seeing familiar faces as well as meeting new music lovers yet to discover Brockwood Park Concerts.
