Thank you to all our Sponsors, Festival Friends and Audiences for so generously enabling the festival to keep going during these extraordinary last two years. The 2021 festival, though reduced in content, was a great success with performances of world-class virtuosity generating delighted feedback.
We now invite you to celebrate Spring in Ripon, with a Symphony Concert on Saturday 7th May at Ripon Cathedral. We welcome the return of Royal Northern Sinfonia in a dazzling programme: Mendelssohn Overture The Hebrides, Mozart Violin Concerto No 5 – soloist Irène Duval – and Beethoven’s epic Symphony No 3 ‘Eroica’.
