Our Programme for 13th to 17th February 2019

The 2018 Ealing Music and Film Festival will deliver yet another splendid programme of events.

Please put these dates in your diary!  13th to 17th February 2019

We are continuing with our focus on Ealing's Cultural Heart. We are recognising the legacy that Ealing has developed by coming full circle from the past to the present. We have compositions and films both old and contemporary, doing what the Festival "says on the can" - focusing on our Films and Music during the period that spans St Valentine's Day.

There will be three orchestral concerts, featuring Tamsin Little, Lauren Zhang, the London Mozart Players, Ealing Youth Orchestra and West London Sinfonia. We also have our local community choir, Love2sing, performing classical and contemporary songs, interspersed with music and films for all tastes. We are incorporating an evening of "Jazz and Soul" in partnership with the Ealing Club at The Brentham Club and a new partnership with The MetFilm School. The major film screening is "Quadrophenia".

The festival proudly continues its close association with the University of West London where we are staging one of our major concerts and two film evenings.  Other key venues will again include the Church of St Barnabas north of the centre of Ealing and St Mary's Ealing, just to the south.

Education is central to our Festival programmes. Locally connected professional players are again, at our request and as part of our outreach, joining players from the Ealing Youth Orchestra in rehearsal and performance.

As usual, copies of the 2019 Festival Souvenir Programme will be available for purchase during the festival - please buy one and find out more about what is on and where.  Many local businesses have contributed to the programme - and this will be a chance to find out about many hidden aspects of our Borough. Remember that, as a Charitable Trust, all our surplus income gets reinvested in the young people of Ealing. Thank you.
