Next Battle Festival Event – Romantic Classics & Hollywood Favourites

Battle Festival has announced a surprise September matinee recital in advance of October’s main programme of events.

Dan Cornford, the festival’s Direct of Classical Music has confirmed that he and fellow Battle Festival Sinfonia performers, pianist Marissa Cornford and contralto Mae Heydorn, will perform at St Mary’s Church on Sunday September 27th.

All three performers were members of the Sinfonia which thrilled audiences during the inaugural festival in 2014.


In a preview of things to come in October, the three world-class musicians will perform in what has been billed as ‘Romantic Classics & Hollywood Favourites’, a recital featuring works by great romantic composers Brahms and Schumann. This will be accompanied by light popular favourites including songs by Gershwin, Cole Porter and Edith Piaf.
