This year’s festival – our 78th – brings together a selection of musical delights, from glorious chamber music to alternative and unique experiences with classical music. We welcome artists including: City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Manchester Collective, Laura Cannell, The Carice Singers, Scottish Ensemble, Laura van der Heijden and more. There’s plenty to enjoy and indulge your musical curiosity.
