It is with great sadness that we have had to call off our concerts which were to have taken place at St Nicholas, Dersingham in July. Like all organisations involved in the church and arts, Music in Country Churches is dealing with a period of unprecedented disruption and uncertainty. We stand with musicians, music lovers, and our parish churches and will do all we can to help get live music going again.
In lieu of a live concert we are hoping to offer a digital concert which will be broadcast around the time that our Dersingham concerts were to have taken place. We hope to be able to release details of this by the middle of June so please check back here regularly.
Make a Donation
Help us raise funds to maintain the fabric of our beautiful country churches. We aim is to raise funds for churches of special beauty and historical importance allowing the Trust to make significant donations to the churches we visit, to help specifically with the heavy costs of the upkeep of the fabrics.
I have over the last 20 years attended many concerts promoted by ‘Music in Country Churches’, an excellent charity working hard to raise money for hard-up rural churches. Each concert is meticulously organised and features guest artists of international calibre
It has always been a great pleasure for me to take part in the Music for Country Churches concerts, whether it was with orchestra, chamber music or a solo recital. The churches in which the concerts take place are always special, frequently situated in the most lovely English countryside, and the audiences are always warm, attentive and most welcoming. Meeting with the audience in a marquee where supper is served after the concert is another touch enjoyed by all the performers and audience alike.

It is one of the Trust’s unique achievements that it has been able to take music of this quality to the countryside and at the same time make significant contributions to over seventy churches to help with the costs of their upkeep.
Music in Country Churches is a celebration of beautiful music and beautiful churches. I was fortunate to be present at the first concert more than twenty years ago in Norfolk. Since then, like thousands of people in many areas, I have enjoyed concerts and recitals by musicians and choirs of international repute.

My association with Music in Country Churches began over fifteen years ago. Since then I have travelled many miles to concerts that combine the attractions of historic architecture and the talents of first class international artists.
