For the latest amateur classical music listings in and around Portsmouth, including Fareham, Petersfield, Chichester, Havant and Hayling Island

Petworth Festival has a long history of working with the finest artists and performers across the genres, but from the outset, classical music has formed the core of the annual Summer event. The 2019 programme, running from Tuesday 16 July to Saturday 3 August, once again boasts a top-drawer line up of performers, all regulars on the biggest platforms of the world.

The diverse array of soloists includes ‘the hottest guitarist in the world’ Miloš Karadaglić; violinists Viktoria Mullova and Tamsin Waley-Cohen; and pianists Imogen Cooper and Barry Douglas; ensembles appearing include the Brodsky Quartet with guest cellist Laura van der Heijden; stellar vocal ensemble I Fagiolini with a programme in celebration of the life and work of Leonardo da Vinci; Chineke!, the young ensemble that features black and ethnic minority classical musicians, and the ensemble Counterpoise who, in a major coup for the festival, appear with one of the greatest opera singers of recent generations, bass-baritone Sir John Tomlinson.

Priority Booking for Festival Supporters from 13 April. Box office opens on 9 May. From that date, book online 24/7 or call 01798 344576 (Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-1pm).
