Harrogate Music Festival

 Harrogate | home of music

The Harrogate Music Festival brings the best of chamber, classical, jazz and contemporary music to a host of venues in Harrogate, and nurtures emerging talent through the Young Musician’s Platform, whose alumni include Lesley Garret, Julian Lloyd Webber and Amy Winehouse.  As well as world-class performers the festival features Guest Curators, artist residencies, Masterclasses, cross-arts performances, family events, lectures and pre-concert talks.

In 2016 Harrogate International Festivals celebrated its 50th Anniversary and 2017’s Festival theme is “Generations”. Music is a universal language that crosses time and space, from one generation to the next. It connects us to the human experience. A piece of music written hundreds of years ago can reveal its beauty stretching across the centuries. It can grab you from the inside. Our programme is designed to celebrate music passed down, honoured or reinvented through the generations, and our Young Musicians Series provides a platform for the next generation of performers.

Unlock the Summer with Harrogate International Festivals – the home of festivals.
