[16 APR 98] WARWICK ARTS SOCIETY PRESS RELEASE
Concerts In Warwickshire Churches

'Concerts in Warwickshire Churches' is one of the principal annual promotions by Warwick Arts Society and is billed as a prelude to the 1998 Warwick & Leamington Festival, which will run 1-11 July.

The artists involved are mostly young or with Midlands connections and this year there are four early music groups, two string quartets, a mixed wind and strings ensemble from Birmingham (Ullenhall), a pianist from France (Snitterfield) and for the first time in the series, we bring together a Royal Shakespeare Company actor and a young harpist in a newly devised programme (Merevale).

The 1998 series brings music to nine churches, all of them having previously benefited from the scheme. These are: North Warwickshire Borough Council - Merevale and Over Whitacre, Rugby Borough Council - Clifton on Dunsmore, Stratford District Council - Aston Cantlow, Bidford on Avon, Ilmington, Kineton, Snitterfield and Ullenhall

All the local authorities and Warwickshire County Council and West Midlands Arts help the series with subsidies. Further help comes from trusts and generous individuals and the whole series is sponsored by Jet Petrol.

Festival Director Richard Phillips says:

"This series brings soloists who perform in Symphony Hall and all over the world into small Warwickshire villages and introduces to the region other artists tipped to be the stars of tomorrow. The audiences are a mix of people living within walking distance of the churches and those who make the concerts are given an excuse to get to know beautiful parts of the county and our rich ecclesiastical architecture."

These audiences can benefit from the Warwickshire Super-Rover season ticket and this and tickets for individual concerts which run from 9 May to 20 June are obtainable locally and from the Warwick & Leamington Festival Box Office in Warwick on 01926 496277.
