A series of four concerts over the course of four days is heading to Stoke-by-Nayland at the end of this month, as part of an annual arts festival.

Organised by Roman River Music, the festival will bring a number of classical music performances to St Mary’s Church, from September 27 to 30.

It kicks off on Thursday, September 27, with the Marian Consort, which will be performing a variety of choral pieces from the last 400 years.

This will be followed on Friday, September 28, with a concert by Jamal Aliyev and the international soprano Nika Gorič, who will be performing a new orchestration of Elgar’s Cello Concerto.

On Saturday, September 29, Roman River’s artistic director Orlando Jopling will conduct orchestral highlights from Wagner’s Götterdämmerung and La Mer, to mark the 100th anniversary of Debussy’s death.

Finally, the concert series will conclude on Sunday, September 30, with performances of music from the film soundtracks of Saving Private Ryan and Warhorse, plus Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending, played by the violinist Sulki Yu and movements from Holst’s The Planets.
