2023/24 Bedford Season

We return to our longest standing residency in Bedford for five inspiring concerts. This season, we’re performing with some of the most exciting names in classical music – including our two Featured Artists, violinist Nicola Benedetti and soprano Julia Bullock – for a range of repertoire from Mozart to Mahler.

Our two autumn concerts are part of our series, Let Freedom Ring: Celebrating the Sounds of America. The series celebrates the dazzling diversity of American music, the creative crosscurrents between classical music and jazz, and the musicians whose distinctive sounds have shaped their country’s identity.
