Nova Classical Music Festival: join us for 3 wonderful evenings of exciting and diverse repertoire.
Young musicians are bringing classical music home to Wheal Martyn this Summer…
Live music returns again to St Austell on 25th, 26th and 27th August 2022 : after the amazing success of its inaugural concerts in 2021, the classical music festival, Nova, will once again sparkle with performances by exciting young musicians at the wonderful Wheal Martyn Museum in St Austell…
Joseph Barker, the artistic director and founder, has teamed up with fellow Cornish musicians, currently in their second year at London, Birmingham and Salzburg conservatoires, to bring a fantastic, varied programme in this sometimes culturally-overlooked area of Cornwall.
With pre-concert drinks and snacks on the pretty clematis-strewn terrace, and beautiful Brahms, Britten, Mozart, Dvorak and Tchaikovsky string movements played by a variety of ensembles in the lovely atrium of the museum, it’s the perfect, chilled summer evening out.
The festival takes its name from the term used for a new star, representing not only its aim to celebrate young musicians on the cusp of their careers, but also to provide inspiring concerts for local audiences and to encourage local young people to enjoy and get into classical music.
