by Madonna

Celebrating the enduring legacy of Worcestershire’s beloved composer, the annual Elgar Festival promises a rich tapestry of orchestral, chamber, vocal, and choral performances, complemented by engaging exhibits and enlightening lectures.

Renowned for her training at The Royal College of Music and The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Esther Abrami is poised to captivate audiences at the festival’s signature late-night event, Club Elgar, on May 31. The enchanting soirée commences at 9:30 p.m. within the historic Guildhall of Worcester.

Kenneth Woods, the festival’s artistic director, expressed his excitement, stating, “We are delighted to welcome Esther to this year’s Festival; her exceptional talent, infectious charisma, and unwavering passion for music position her as one of the most promising young classical artists of her generation. Cinéma truly showcases Esther’s versatility, musical sensitivity, and technical brilliance.”

In a testament to her rising stature, Abrami clinched victory in the ‘Social Media Superstar’ category at The Global Awards in 2019, marking her as a standout talent. This accolade was followed by her inclusion in Classic FM’s ’30 under 30 Classical Artists to Watch’ series in 2021, curated by Julian Lloyd Webber.

Further acclaim includes recognition as a ‘Rising Star’ by BBC Music Magazine and a prestigious signing with Sony Classical. Abrami made her debut at the Royal Albert Hall in 2022, solidifying her status as a rising star in the classical realm.

Anticipated highlights of her performance at the Elgar Festival include selections from her latest album, ‘Cinema’, released to critical acclaim in September 2023. The album features fresh arrangements for violin and orchestra, showcasing film and TV scores, classical music from iconic movies, anime hits, and original compositions by Oscar-winning composers.

Tickets for Abrami’s performances are priced at £10 per person, offering attendees the opportunity to experience her artistry firsthand. Earlier on the festival day, at 1 p.m., Abrami will grace the stage at Huntingdon Hall, presenting a program that includes Vaughan Williams’ timeless ‘The Lark Ascending’ and a medley of Elgar Miniatures, with admission also priced at £10 per person.
