Welcome to an exciting new season at Kelso Music Society. As ever we have a wonderful line-up of players, starting in October 2019 with the renowned Brodsky Quartet, then a return visit by the amazing pianist Anna Fedorova. The Carducci Quartet/Julian Bliss are wonderful musicians and are followed by Catriona Morison, the first British singer to win the Main Prize as well as the Song Prize (jointly) at the Cardiff Singer of the World competition. In February 2020 we have the Busch Trio, winners of 2016 Kersjesprijs, the Netherlands’ premier CD chamber music award. Yeol Eum Son is playing for us in March - she is silver medallist at two of the world’s most prestigious piano competitions - the Tchaikovsky (2011) in Moscow and the Van Cliburn Competition in America in 2009. The Maharaj Degavino Duo Formed in 2017 are Tunnel Award winners and the season is rounded off with one of the world's great viola players Lawrence Power, accompanied on the piano by Simon Crawford Phillips. None should be missed!
Wishing you a very enjoyable season,
Peter Podmore, President.
