Welcome to Harrogate International Festivals’ second Young Musicians Autumn Series. Following the success of 2012’s inaugural series, we’re proud to continue working in partnership with Live Music Now to introduce some of the brightest rising stars in classical, jazz, folk and world music. This year’s season is guaranteed to add some mid-week magic to your Autumn, taking you on a journey through the centuries with the Vista Trio and rising to the soaring heights with beautiful soprano, Chloe Saywell. The series also plays host to Slidin’ About, the trombone quartet hot off the RNCM press and making great waves on the national brass scene, and the exceptional folk duo, Freya Rae and Louis Bingham. Set in the elegant surroundings of Harrogate’s Wesley Chapel, we are proud to present another season of young musicians as part of our year-round work to provide a platform for the world’s most enthralling performers. Join us as we invite the next generation to the stage.
