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, from the Medieval to the Baroque, intertwined with the sagas, stories and tales of the north.  

The 2022 Festival will run from Friday 9th – Saturday 17th December – opening with La Palatine, rising stars of the Creative Europe funded EEEmerging+ programme.  Highlights will include violinist Bojan Cicic presenting two complementary concerts celebrating the music of Bach and guest ensembles will include Spiritato!, Ensemble Moliere, the Orlando Consort, Yorkshire Baroque Soloists and Solomon’s Knot.  

Full details will be available in the summer.  To ensure that you get up to date news, please join our free mailing list – here …. You can unsubscribe at any time.
