2018’s Festival theme, Innovation, brought one of the most mercurial (and Mercury Award nominated) singers, Laura Mvula, to Harrogate. The Festival also saw the return of Festival favourite, The John Wilson Orchestra, who swung into town to breathe new life into Hollywood’s Golden Age. We set to relive Bernstein and Tchaikovsky, marking key anniversaries of the composers’ lives, with Emma Johnson and The Halle Orchestra. Ever popular theatre troop Oddsocks returned once more with their take on a Shakespeare classic, The Tempest, whilst our Young Musicians platform welcomed violinist Louisa Staples and The Meridiem Duo.
