2014-2015 JdP Concert Series

This year’s 20th anniversary programme maintains its focus on chamber and instrumental repertoire that has been a key part of the JdP since its inception, featuring concerts by Steven Isserlis (JdP Patron), Nick van Bloss, Michael Collins and the outstanding Belcea Quartet, returning to the JdP on Sunday 25th January as the culmination of our celebratory weekend, which profiles the full range of what we currently do.

This season we build on the success of our Family Cushion Concerts by mounting the JdP’s first-ever Christmas Pantomime, Cinderella Green The Recycling Queen; and our contemporary music series MASH is also proud to host the UK’s first-ever national Electronic Music Prize, along with a range of innovative contemporary classical programmes such as Joby Burgess, Manifesto, MASH Marathon and the Brodsky Quartet.
