The 12th installment of the Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival begins on 28th September 2023, celebrating the theme ‘A Family Affair’. Guy Johnston, the founding Artistic Director, opens the festival with a talk introducing the theme, and will be performing in three concerts during the Festival.
In his introduction to the programme, Johnston writes
As the planning developed, family connections began to emerge starting with the home of the Salisburys, whose family join together during the Festival weekend, and reaching out to the wider Festival family amongst the audience, musicians and even works being performed. Community is at the heart of this musical gathering.
