What a fantastic time we had in 2018! Packed houses and fulsome praise from our wonderful audiences for choral, chamber, baroque, jazz; fizzing energy, virtuosity and laughs with ZRI; a stratospheric performance of a two-symphony programme by the London Mozart Players/Janusz Piotrowicz at Ripon Cathedral; Kathryn Tickell’s enchanting show; and an epic Grande Finale of the magnificent First Symphony of Sibelius & the Elgar Cello Concerto with Royal Northern Sinfonia at the Royal Hall
