Welcome to St Peter's Music 2013
We are the concert promoting arm of St Peter's Church, Budleigh Salterton.
A number of times each year from Spring to Autumn we promote a concert in our lovely church. If you click on the links on the right you will find details of this year's concerts, the church and how to find it, where to park and how to buy tickets in advance.
St Peter's Music was started in 1994 by the then Vicar, The Revd Robert Gibbs and the Director of Music, Sylvia Pritchard. The intention was to provide regular concerts, mainly, but not exclusively, chamber music, to enable local residents to enjoy serious music without the need to travel to Exeter. Since then the organisation has changed little and the aim not at all. There is some emphasis in the programming to feature young musicians but not this year. Exeter School is back on stream again so our support for young people continues.
We have also welcomed the Takacs Quartet, well-known pianists Paul Lewis, John Lill and Peter Donohoe have played for us in the past, as well as the Chamber Ensemble of St Martins in the Field in the last few years as well as famous clarinettist Emma Johnson and the Endellion Quartet.
This year, apart from Exeter School we are hosting Richard Uttley, a young up and coming pianist, the Philharmonie Europa, a chamber orchestra with players from many European countries, and the English Piano Trio with narration for their ‘The Danube - Musical Journey’ by BBC star Timothy West.
