Welcome to the 2013 Plaxtol Music Festival to what we believe is a range of fine music in local settings including Plaxtol Church with its superb music acoustics and a return to the Colin and Caroline Creed's lovely garden, our own mini- Glyndebourne! Wonderful music and a relaxed atmosphere await you. Please come and join the fun! oncerts running from March to November are as follows:

Saturday 16th March at 7.30pm:  Chaconne Brass
Sunday 28th April at 4pm:  Quartz Quartet
Saturday 5th October at 7.30pm:  Cello recital with Guy Johnston and accompanist Tom Poster
Saturday 6th July at 5pm: Members of Opera Brava in the wonderful gardens of Caroline and Colin Creed
Saturday 23rd November at 7pm:  Choristers of Canterbury Cathedral
The festival runs on a not-for-profit basis and any profit after artists’ costs will go to the Demelza Trust, a local Children's hospice.
Booking forms should be returned to either myself at Plaxtol Vineyard in The Street, or to Gill French, at Chapel House, School Lane. Marian Hemstead and The Friends of Plaxtol Church will as usual organise all the refreshments.
Chaconne Brass are one of Britain's' most versatile and respected brass ensembles will play a range of music from Gershwin to Miles Davis.  The members are guest principals and soloists with the UK's top orchestras.
The Quartz Quartet is a superb young string quartet, all current final year undergraduates at the Royal Academy of Music. They have been selected several times to participate in the Academy’s ‘Quartet Study Days’, performing for the UK’s leading chamber musicians as well as the ‘National Young String Quartet’ weekend.
Members of Opera Brava return to Plaxtol, singing a selection of popular opera and operetta arias including some Gilbert and Sullivan and other light-hearted music. As with the jazz concert in 2010, bring a picnic and stroll around the Creed’s garden before the event starts and in the interval.  
The cellist Guy Johnston has an enviable reputation in the music world. A King’s College Cambridge chorister, the 2000 BBC Young Musician of the Year, he is the leading cellist of his generation and performs world-wide.  He played at the First Night of Proms in 2001, is a professor of cello at Royal Academy of Music, and was recently at Buckingham Palace to meet HM The Queen at a reception for young people in the performing arts.
David Flood is the Master of the Cathedral choristers and the Cathedral organist at Canterbury. He will conduct the 30-strong choristers, boys of 8 – 13 years. The choir's repertoire is wide, singing and performing music from the 13th century to newly-composed works.
