Winner’s Picnic Concert

2:30pm, Sunday, July 7th, 2024
Fairlight Hall, Fairlight, Hastings

We’re thrilled that our 2024 first prize winner, Curtis Phill Hsu, returns to Sussex this summer for a special picnic concert in the delightful surroundings of Fairlight Hall, just outside Hastings. Still riding high on his triumphant win at this year’s competition, Curtis offers the chance to hear a more intimate side of his playing with a full-length recital programme of works by Schumann, Liszt, Mozart and Debussy. Our Artistic Director, Vanessa Latarche, will introduce Curtis to the audience and conduct a brief Q&A with him.

Bring a picnic lunch to enjoy beforehand in the beautiful gardens, or buy an inclusive package which includes your ticket and a sit-down lunch in the Hall. What better way to pass a summer afternoon?

Limited cover of audience seating area will be provided in the event of bad weather.
