HARWICH FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS 2014
The energetic North Sea Port of Harwich forms the backdrop for this burgeoning Festival of Arts
under the directorship of composer Diana Burrell. 111 cyclists open the Festival on June 25 with
Mauricio Kagel’s ‘Eine Brise’, speeding along the quay and narrow streets, setting them to music
with bells and whistles.
Enjoy performances from Simon Armitage (3 July); the Essex Symphony Orchestra (28 June); as
well as Yantra; Lucy Ward; Opus Anglicanum; premieres of 6 works, and 17 lunchtime and
afternoon concerts. The Harwich ‘Art Quarter’ features unpredictable spaces as galleries and the
Festival ends with the stunning ‘Carmina Burana’ set in an illuminated St Nicholas church.
AS I SEE IT Diana Burrell
Strong currents energise the waters around our Essex coast and bracing winds re-order the cloud
formations that race along our skies. Huge flocks of migrating birds speed in from the north,
whilst massive container ships laden with cargo strike out in another direction. Nothing stands still
for long here.
