Music Oft Hath Such a Charm
Saturday 18 February 2017
The National Centre For Early Music
The Song Day focuses on settings of the great bard’s verse, albeit after 2016’s significant anniversaries but it is never too late to celebrate the words that have inspired so much great music. Originally the settings were heard in the context of the plays for which they were written but gradually moved outside the theatre so that by the late 19th and 20th centuries many composers – especially British ones – were inspired to set Shakespeare’s texts. These include Stanford, Sullivan, Vaughan Williams, Coates, Quilter, Finzi, Bridge, Maconchy, Dring – a veritable stellar group of composers for the voice!

Roderick Williams needs no introduction to audiences both in York and further afield and we are delighted to welcome him back for song recitals, a genre in which he is one of the world’s pre-eminent performers. A winner of the Kathleen Ferrier Award and now a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Kitty Whately is a passionate interpreter of song and has given many recitals including at the Wigmore Hall, the Edinburgh Festival and the Oxford and Leeds Lieder Festivals.

Fibbers: Glass Caves, Faux Pas, Corella, In Sulks
Saturday 18 March 2017
“GLASS CAVES quickly became a word of mouth phenomenon. Each song seemed to be carefully honed, with the band’s craftsmanship allowing them to gradually sand down rough edges, refining their voice on their travels” – Clash Music

This is one heckuva show, especially with FAUX PAS who recently stuffed Fibbers to the brim on their own account – “energetic performance provides an exciting and refreshing twist to the indie rock sound we know and love!” – J.A.M MAGAZINE

Manchester’s CORELLA (influences – Bombay Bicycle Club / Little Comets / Paul Simon / Foals / Hendrix / Maccabees) have a positive vibe with powerful vocals, funky guitars and energetic drums containing elements of funk and pop.

First up IN SULKS from Sheffield are “channelling rebellious teenage angst into musical endeavours to pass time until we are all sucked into the inevitable parasitic void that is death”. Not in to that? How about upbeat indie-punk with elements of ska/reggae to “move yo body”.
Ticket: £8 Doors: 7.30pm Age:14+

York Proms 2017
Sunday 9 July 2017
Where: Yorkshire Museum Gardens
Rebecca Newman / Daniel Koek / Tre Amici
A rousing picnic concert in the heart of medieval York.

York is the kind of city that leaves a lasting impression on all her visitors because of the wealth of history, architecture and culture that the locals are lucky enough to live right on top of!

York has a number of festivals each year, which incorporate music, arts, food, comedy and more. However, York didn't have its very own summer proms event, which is a central feature of the entertainment calendar for many other towns and cities. After months of groundwork, The York Proms team are excited to announce the date and venue for the first York Proms. The event will take place on the evening of Sunday 9th July in Museum Gardens.

Expect a show filled with some of the greatest, and most popular, classical music ever written. Bring your picnic basket and your flags to help us kick off a brand new event in York in style! Earlybird Tickets are available from www.yorkproms.com
