Jeremy Pound On Two Moors Festival Train Station Concerts

If you follow us and other UK classical music festivals, then you’ll likely have heard of our innovative concert series that take place each year in the waiting room of Tiverton Parkway station. And if you haven’t, then chances are you will soon as they are catching the attention of music journalists around the UK, including BBC Music Magazine’s Jeremy Pound.

He came along to hear Two Moors Festival Young Musicians Platform Competition winner Andy Wingham play the cornet and had this to say about the event: ” I am told by Penny Adie, artistic director of the Two Moors Festival and the person whose brainchild this series is, the ticket office’s sound is absolutely ideal too – she tells me how it was hearing the wheels of a suitcase running across the floor that alerted her to the acoustic potential of the place (only festival artistic directors would notice this sort of thing…).”

You can read about his experience at the concert on the BBC Music Magazine website. We’re hoping to put on some more concerts come Christmas time, so if you missed our autumn series don’t worry. Follow us on Twitter or keep an eye on the blog for further announcements.
