“From the magic of Star Wars
to the mystery of Sibelius; from the drama of Shostakovich to the sensuality of Ravel; from the miracle of Mozart to the irresistible swing of West Side Story
, there’s something for just about everyone in the 2018 Festival. All of my colleagues join me in eager anticipation of what is certain to be another memory-making season.”
— Music Director, Alasdair Neale
