Audiences from all walks of life are invited to this special community concert. After a journey through some popular (and water themed!) highlights of the baroque era including movements from Handel’s ‘Water Music’ and Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’, the concert takes a local turn as the players are joined by singers and instrumentalists from across the region in a ‘Concerto for York’ specially written for the occasion.

Guests include the NCEM’s Minster Minstrels; the Castaway Goole Sloop Group and Community Choir and students from York College. For our grand finale we would like to invite our audience to join us in singing our uplifting song ‘Watercycle’ – a truly entertaining way to celebrate the cycle of life!
