Orchestra in a Field Postponed until 2014
Orchestra in a Field 2013 has been postponed until next year.
The inspirational and popular event made its debut in 2012 to wide acclaim and attracted a local, national and international audience. The event which has the energy of a rock festival with an orchestra at its heart was due to take place at Glastonbury Abbey on July 20 and 21. It will now be rescheduled for summer 2014.
Charles Hazlewood, Festival Director, said:
“In order to develop Orchestra in a Field and to make it a sustainable event for future years, we have taken the decision to hold our next Festival in 2014.
“This will enable us to pursue and build the necessary long-term relationships with our partners and maximise awareness of this unique festival to create a lasting musical legacy.“Orchestra in a Field is a fledgling festival and it’s not easy to establish something new, particularly in the current economic climate.”
“I have always wanted to open up access to classical music, take people on a musical journey and share a range of traditional and new experiences; by building these long-term relationships we will be able to do that in a sustainable way and ensure we are doing this for generations to come.”
The world-class programme for 2013, now with the exciting addition of The Philharmonia Orchestra, will continue forward into next year.
The Orchestra in a Field team will be announcing the date for next year’s event shortly.
