Fretful Federation Mandolin Orchestra Event Image

The Fretful Federation Mandolin Orchestra is a community group comprised of players from around Sussex.

Each year they perform a number concerts in the region along with special guests. For their first-ever participation in the Hurst Festival, they will have soprano Nicola Stock and flautist Kathy Rogers performing such pieces as Pur ti miro by Monteverdi, The Flower Duet by Delibes and the beautiful traditional song She Moved Through the Fair.

The orchestra program will be as varied as ever and will include an English and French Suite by J S Bach, Passepied by Delibes, National Dances by Kurt Schwaen and Karl Jenkins' Song of the Spirit along with some traditional tunes and two movements of Benjamin Britten's Simple Symphony.

This is a rare chance to hear a full mandolin orchestra, comprised of mandolins, mandolas, classical guitars, acoustic bass and bass viol.

As heard on BBC Radio 3!
