Joining Sarah Ayrton on Saturday 4 March is the gentle Chloe Linkens, who brings to the festival a touch of quiet sophistication. With her harp, Chloe will lead the evening into a mood of grace and elegance. Chloe will be making music of a soothing and relaxing tone that will refresh the heart of the listener and leave all feeling tranquil and refreshed.
Derbyshire based Chloe has achieved her Performance Diploma and performed at the last Breadsall Festival to the delight of the audience. She was invited to perform at the Dana de Waal and Friends Christmas programme in 2016. The festival is thrilled to welcome Chloe back as a solo artist.
A small delicacy of delight as part of the programme, will be the brief appearance Beate Toyka accompanying Lucy Philips on the violin.
German born Beate Toyka is a musician, pianist, teacher, and event organiser, who delights in sharing music with the widest audience possible. Her music is rooted in a strong conservatoire education, in both Germany and England. She now resides in Derbyshire where she has become a musical tour de force and we are thrilled that she has agreed to play at the festival this year.
Lucy graduated from the University of York where she studied violin with Jonathan Sparey and Simon Jones in 2003. During her time there she developed a particular interest in Baroque music and took part in a masterclass with Andrew Manze.
She then went on to complete a Masters in performance at the University of Limerick with Romanian violinist Mariana Sirbu and she received coaching in chamber music from Ferenc Szücs, Bruno Giuranna and Hugh Maguire.
We look forward to welcoming both Beate and Lucy to our stage!
