The Marian Consort is giving the world premiere of a new work by Sarah Frances Jenkins inspired by the pre-Raphaelite designs of Castle Howard’s chapel where the work is being performed, along with music by Laurence Osborn.

Other performers include artist in residence, horn player Felix Klieser, who is playing chamber music plus Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 4 with the Royal Northern Sinfonia, violinist Rachel Podger who tours a solo programme to intimate and beautiful venues across the region, and Angela Hewitt in Bach and Beethoven, plus many more.
