The Dorking Concertgoers 2016-17 season brings professional classical music to Mole Valley.

The season at the Dorking Halls opens with the return, by popular demand, of sitar player Vijay Jagtap who gave a spellbinding concert of ragas two years ago. In November, up and coming pianist Mishka Rushdie Momen presents an attractive programme featuring Mozart, Messiaen, Schubert, Schumann and Beethoven.

In January, to warm us up, the Philharmonia Orchestra play works by Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Dvorák under the baton of rising star Clemens Schuldt.

The Piatti String Quartet will play all three of Brahms’ quartets during their three concert series, along with quartets by Haydn, Mozart, Britten and Beethoven.

The Kammerphilharmonie Europa’s concert in March features engaging works by Hummel, Mozart, Holst, Borodin and Grieg.

The last concert of the season is on a Sunday afternoon at the Menuhin Hall and is given by the Sitkovetsky Piano Trio who play glorious trios by Haydn, Saint-Saëns and Dvorák.
