Ragged Music Festival

Last September the Ragged School Museum presented our very first musical festival.

In our thirtieth year we branch out in a new direction, we are delighted that world class pianists Pavel Kolesnikov and Samson Tsoy devised three recitals which brought together some of the finest young musicians in Europe. Sponsored by Yamaha who provided a concert grand piano, the light-filled, unrenovated rooms at the top of the building offered an informal, intimate, atmospheric space to experience three sparkling recitals.
