Support the festival
Friends of the Festival
The Friends of the Festival is a thriving, friendly group which has been a great support during this unique year. The Friends’ subscriptions and subsequent generous donations have enabled Lawrence to proceed with the exciting filming project this year when live concerts are impossible.
Sadly, the Friends’ event in April when we were going to enjoy the double luxury of a concert from Lawrence and Vilde Frang had to be cancelled, but, pandemic-permitting, I’m sure we’ll be looking forward to an equally enjoyable event in 2021. After our starvation from live music we’ll all relish it all the more when it resumes!
On August 31st Friends joined a Zoom call with Lawrence where he outlined his plans for the 2020 festival – a fantastic array of musicians and novel ideas for bringing the festival to life and recreating the atmosphere we all love. Friends asked questions and came up with ideas, and there was a discussion of the different styles of presenting streamed music.
The Friends’ application form for the 2021 festival season is here, but meanwhile donations towards the cost of producing what I’m sure will be an amazing filmed West Wycombe Chamber Music Festival would be very welcome.
