LATEST NEWS

Thank you to all who made the 2022 May EMF such a success: to all those at the venues for their invaluable help and support and for welcoming us so warmly; to the artists, for the energy and commitment of their performances; to all the volunteers who assisted with general administration, staffing the Box Office, stage-managing and stewarding, and without whose help running the Festival would simply not be possible; and, of course, to our audiences, whose enthusiasm and financial and moral support all continue to mean so much as live music-making returns and we begin to plan for the future.

The English Music Festival is delighted to return to magnificent Truro Cathedral on Saturday 9 July for a day of concerts. The programme, which includes Vaughan Williams’s The Lark Ascending and choral works by Walton, Elgar and Orlando Gibbons, may be viewed on this page; and booking can be made through our Online Box Office.
