North York Moors Music Festival

The third North York Moors Chamber Music Festival runs from 15 to 27 Aug 2011. This year’s theme is “Paths to Russia” and each concert will include works from Russia. Renowned cellist Jamie Walton and friends will be playing music in beautiful churches in Egton Bridge, Wykeham, Lythe, Danby, Guisborough, Sneaton Castle, Fylingdales and Whitby. The Lastingham concert sold out some time ago and others are already well-subscribed. Ticket prices are modest (£8/£6). August is a great time to cross the moors, with the heather in full bloom.

Interviews with festival musicians and music can be heard on Radio 3 ‘In Tune’ on Thursday 11th August, at 4.45pm. Musicians include Jamie Walton, Min-Jin Kym, Caroline Henbest, Daniel Grimwood and Guy Johnston. 
Furthermore, Radio York are going to be broadcasting an interview to promote the festival on their Sunday Mid-Morning programme (14th August).
