In celebration of the Festival’s 50th Anniversary, three world-renowned ensembles who have all appeared in Windsor Festival throughout its history come together for a beautiful programme of some of the finest English choral music, The Choirs of Eton College Chapel and St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle unite under the baton of Christopher Robinson, who made his Windsor Festival conducting debut in 1974.
Joined by exciting young mezzo-soprano Kate Symonds-Joy for Elgar’s evocative Sea Pictures, a glorious evening is promised with St George’s Chapel’s fine acoustics, a venue which Windsor Festival has been privileged to use from the beginning.
