The three fine young artists comprising the Marsyas Trio
are coming to Barkham to give a recital featuring works
by women composers of the 19th-Century alongside those living today.
They are recording a CD in November for the Meridien label
and are the recipients of a ‘Women Make Music’ award
from the PRS for Music Foundation – a commissioning grant
intended to promote the work of living women composers.

All proceeds go towards the Festival's education work.
Please support - we need your help.
For those who have not visited us before,
the concerts take place in a converted barn
situated in a beautiful location on top of Exmoor.

Diary dates
The Two Moors Festival weekly concerts
in the Booking Office at Tiverton Parkway Station 
begin on Friday, 6th September.
Featuring talented up-and-coming artists,
they are well worth coming to
– as those who attended last October, discovered.

A mythical Greek challenge:
Marsyas (right) playing Athena's aulos
Apollo (left) with his Kithara
The muses judge Apollo the winner.
Poor Marsyas!
