Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival (HHCMF) is held annually in October with internationally renowned musicians performing in the historic setting of Hatfield House under the expert artistic direction of professional cellist, Guy Johnston. It incorporates an Education and Outreach Programme aiming to musically engage, inspire and enable children and young people in Hertfordshire through concerts, workshops and other opportunities. From Dowland, who was in residence at Hatfield House during Elizabeth I’s reign, to folk-inspired improvisation, familiar favourites, new commissions and artists collaborating from around the world, there was definitely something for everyone at this year’s Festival of ‘A World of Music’.
Jill Knight, the Education and Outreach Manager at the Festival describes some of the events that took place.
