Opera, drama, jazz and classical concerts have been lined up for some of the most beautiful venues in Ryedale for two weeks in July.
Stately homes, village halls and country churches will welcome soloists, chamber and concert orchestras during the Ryedale Festival which runs from Friday July 12 to Sunday July 28.
Actress and musical theatre star Patricia Routledge, jazz singer Claire Martin, the Northern Sinfonia and Ryedale Festival Opera are among those on the bill.
Several concerts will for the first time be recorded by BBC Radio 3.
“We welcome many exciting performers,” said artistic director and pianist Christopher Glynn.
Acclaimed soloists Alison Balsom, Steven Isserlis, the Labeque sisters and Chi-chi Nwanoku are all due to perform. Orchestras and choirs include Orchestra of Opera North, European Union Chamber Orchestra, the English Concert and Genesis Sixteen. The popular coffee concerts are at the heart of the festival.
