Director of Music at Pembroke College Cambridge, Anna Lapwood is also in demand worldwide as a harpist, conductor and broadcaster, but it is in her capacity as concert organist that she brings this insightful and varied programme to the glorious Cheltenham College Chapel. In this candle-lit recital, she focuses on the works of Nadia Boulanger’s and a handful of her more widely recognised pupils, including a five-decades-old Cheltenham Music Festival premiere by Patrick Gowers; doffing a hat to one of the many in our 75-year history.


Cheltenham College Chapel

This magnificent building, with its glorious soaring architecture, provides an atmospheric venue for Cheltenham Festivals performances. With a seating capacity of 500, the Late Victorian Gothic chapel is externally based on the chapel of King’s College, Cambridge.

The venue ideally lends itself to choirs and brass ensembles, with its stunning acoustic and fabulous Harrison organ.
