International Concert Season 2018-2019

While the web pages for the new 2018-19 season are being prepared, here is a pre-view of the concerts for the coming season.

If you would like to renew / take out membership for the coming season, please use the new application form (in pdf format) by clicking here. Do please remember to tick the box in the form's GDPR section; under the new Data Protection regulations, we need your active consent to keep your details. Those of you already on our mailing list will receive the new brochure in early September. Individual tickets will be on sale via TicketSource from September 1.

You will notice that we have had to increase our membership from £50 to £60 for the 5 concerts. Membership now gives you 5 concerts for the price of 4 (individual concerts remain priced at £15), and your membership card can be used by a friend if you cannot make some of the concerts. The price increase has been necessary to maintain the quality of concerts that we provide.

I hope you will agree that last season's artists were excellent and that we also have an outstanding line-up for next season. Please note that the January concert is on a Wednesday.

As usual, all concerts are at 7:45pm at Sussex Downs College, Mountfield Road, Lewes BN7 2XH Those aged 8-25 years come FREE thanks to the CAVATINA Chamber Music Trust.
