Join Graham Johnson, one of the world’s finest vocal accompanists, for a superb weekend of song celebrating Benjamin Britten in his centenary year, his influence on others, the composers who influenced him, including Schubert, Schumann and his great friend Francis Poulenc, and the rich heritage of song from around the world.  This is a rare opportunity to hear a dazzling line-up of international artists hand-picked by our Artistic Director, one of the pre-eminent advocates of song.

A packed Festival weekend includes a range of superb concerts, a public Masterclass and ‘In Conversation’ with our Guest of Honour, Ann Murray DBE, a Composers & Poets Forum, new commissions by UK composers Judith Bingham and Alec Roth, South African ‘click singing’ with baritone Njabulo Madlala, a ‘Made in Yorkshire’ recital featuring artists with strong Yorkshire connections, pre-concert talks and an informal recital by the reserve duos from the Masterclass.
