The Schubert Ensemble, one of the world’s leading exponents of music for piano and strings, has decided to bring its 35-year career to a close in June 2018, so the Festival is delighted to welcome them back as part of their final, celebratory season.


British tenor James Way was winner of the Second Prize in the 62nd Kathleen Ferrier Awards at the Wigmore Hall, awarded the 2016 Simon Sandbach Award from Garsington Opera, the ‘Most Promising Singer’ award at the Dean and Chadlington Singing Competition, holds an Independent Opera Voice Fellowship and is a former Britten-Pears Young Artist.
