Dartmoor Resonance Music Festival

Dartmoor Resonance Music Festival

Saturday 16th June – Sunday 24th June

A musical evocation and journey through time marking the 20th anniversary of The Dartmoor Society

A 9-day Midsummer Music Festival, using a wide variety of venues and events, to celebrate the remarkable diversity of composers and performers of sacred and secular music, from prehistory to the present day, all inspired by Dartmoor.

This rich cultural thread, which has not been explored collectively before, will contribute significantly to a sense of place, both old and new, reaching out to communities on Dartmoor, in Britain and beyond. Several pieces of new music will be performed.

For more details please see our Dartmoor Resonance Music Festival page.

  • Open to the public – non-members welcome.
