King's Lynn Festival supporters will not have to wait until next summer to enjoy the festival's top-quality performances as they can look forward to special music events during the coming months.
The Three Seasons is the title of a series of five concerts being staged by Lynn Festival between October and April, beginning with a visit by the renowned London Mozart Players with pianist Daniel de Borah on October 10.
Lynn Festival's artistic director, Ambrose Miller, has vast experience in the classical music world and spots up-and-coming musicians such as Daniel who was invited to perform at one of the coffee concerts during the 2006 festival.
'We think we are pretty good at spotting a rising star at Lynn Festival and it is very satisfying to see Daniel de Borah, who was a big success at the coffee concert, now making such an international career,' said Mr Miller.
