Nottingham Chamber Music Festival presents “Nottingham Stories: Separation and Serenade” this September for online viewing.

Nottingham Stories: Separation and Serenade is a new film project made in response to the cancellation of the NCMF concerts this summer. Festival Director Carmen Flores has joined forces with award-winning Nottingham filmmaker Tim Bassford and several Nottingham venues to produce a series of beautifully shot films which will be streamed via the NCMF website throughout September, each one free to view.

Each movement of J.S. Bach’s Suite in C Major (arranged for viola) has been selected to complement the venue it is performed in, alongside interviews describing how these spaces coped with lockdown and the uncertainty in their sectors.

The films provide a time capsule of the impact Covid-19 has had upon our city in 2020. Unifying our community through music is the heart of NCMF, and we invite you to join us in this storytelling.

This project would have not been possible without the generous support and collaboration of these venues. The films will be premiered on the NCMF website at 7:00pm on these dates, and will be free to watch access on demand following each premiere:

  • 14th Sept – Council House
  • 16th Sept – St. Mary’s in the Lace Market
  • 18th Sept – Delilah Fine Foods
  • 21st Sept – Nottingham High School
  • 23rd Sept – Royal Concert Hall
  • 25th Sept – Nottingham Contemporary
