We are extremely grateful to the Bowerman Charitable Trust for inviting Opera South once again to The Music Room at Champs Hill – a private concert hall created by retired farmer and music lover David Bowerman and his wife, Mary.

The Hall is set in stunning West Sussex countryside and its heathland garden has been developed around old sand quarries containing a collection of over 300 cultivars of heather and dwarf conifers and adorned with statues. Our concert is therefore also a special opportunity to visit the garden, which will open at 6 pm especially for Opera South guests. The Music Room, with exposed beams and polished floor, has excellent acoustics and the piano is one of the best in the country.

After your garden visit (sorry, no picnics!), enjoy wine and canapés followed by a vocal recital showcasing exceptionally talented singers in a programme including The Four Last Songs by Richard Strauss, and songs by Rachmaninov.

Tickets: £35 per person. (plus £1 booking fee)
