CORNWALL MUSIC FESTIVAL 2024 TAKES PLACE IN TRURO BETWEEN MONDAY 11 AND SATURDAY 16 MARCH 2024. SOME OF THE BEST CORNISH TALENT WILL PERFORM MUSIC AND POETRY AT THE EVENT IN TRURO METHODIST CHURCH
Cornwall is a hotbed of talent but it isn’t often you can catch hundreds of its best musicians and performers all in one place over one week. The Cornwall Music Festival 2024, thankfully, does just that, though.
The festival takes place at Truro Methodist Church in Union Place, Truro, between Monday 11 and Saturday 16 March 2024. In 2023, the centrepieces of the week were the opening concert on the Monday from 7.30pm and the gala concert on the Saturday from 7pm. Expect similar highlights at the 2024 edition, however, of course, the whole week is full of musical highlights in reality.
The 2024 Cornwall Music Festival provides an annual platform for talented amateur musicians and verse speakers from all backgrounds and of all ages and abilities. Organisers say that it ‘gives the stimulus of preparing for a public occasion and an opportunity to listen and learn from the performances of others’. Aside from the two big concerts, expect classes run from 9.30am to 9.30pm throughout the week, with morning, afternoon and evening sessions.
Supporting the festival is not just about supporting the local musicians and performers. It’s also about supporting the organisers and helpers as it is run on an entirely voluntary basis. So either get involved yourself or at least catch one of those two incredible concerts at the church. This may be the best way to celebrate Cornwall’s wealth of local talent.
