It feels like I’ve only been here a short while, but the 2017 Cheltenham Music Festival is actually my 10th. Time flies when you’re enjoying yourself…
Clearly, I wanted to make sure this is really one to remember – and I hope you’ll agree that there some massive treats in store. I’m hugely pleased to have secured an appearance from the great Welsh bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, and it’s equally exciting to have both the CBSO and The Hallé coming, the former with their fantastic new Music Director, 30-year-old Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla.
There will be anniversary Monteverdi from I Fagiolini and Academy of Ancient Music, ballet in the Everyman Theatre and Vaughan Williams’ Sea Symphony in Gloucester Cathedral. Click here to find out more. Meurig Bowen
