A Festival of Celebration!
HFoM rejoices in the resurgence of live music in Hertfordshire with an exciting programme of glorious music, both old and new.
This year’s principal artist is the wonderful horn player Ben Goldscheider. Ben has gone from strength to strength since being the BBC Young Musician finalist in 2016, giving recitals in major concert halls around the world. Ben is from Hertfordshire and is delighted to be involved in several Festival events: his Goldscheider Quintet with narrated pieces by Ruth Gipps and Ravel; a recital with pianist Richard Uttley; and a masterclass given to selected aspiring horn performers.
The Festival brings together a fantastic line up of international artists, including Guy Johnston (cello), Melvyn Tan (piano), Mathilde Milwidsky (violin), Huw Watkins (piano), Maggini String, Emma Halnan (flute), Jake Hancher (guitar), Onyx Brass, ZRI, William Whitehead (organ), HFoM Festival Orchestra conducted by Matthew Taylor
