York Early Music Christmas Festival
December 8, 2018
The York Early Music Christmas Festival was created in 1997 to introduce audiences to the extraordinary wealth of music associated with Advent, Christmas and Epiphany intertwined with the sagas, stories and tales of the north which are designed to get us all through the long winter nights.
Guest artists joining us bring programmes that cover nearly 500 years, from the Medieval through to the Baroque with most events taking place at the National Centre for Early Music at St Margaret’s Church in York – a comfortable venue for a winter’s evening.
Ten events over eight days, highlights of which include Bach’s Christmas Oratorio presented by the Yorkshire Bach Choir, and a mix of established and new artists including Voces8, Joglaresa, Ex Cathedra, Spiritato and The York Waits.
Join in for the antidote to a chaotic Christmas and set the tone for a relaxed and music-filled yuletide with the National Centre for Early Music’s much-loved annual York Early Music Festival – celebrating its 20th anniversary!
There are also opportunities for singers to find their own voice during a participatory choral workshop led by James Weeks (Sat 8th).
