Join us for a special evening of music around Hatfield House, launching the 2019 Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival. This unique promenade-style event comprises a veritable feast of artists, repertoire and locations.

Our journey will take in sounds from the fascinating and unique musical archives of Hatfield House, together with themes from this year’s festival (revealed on the night) with music by Fauré, Saint-Saëns, Byrd, Tallis, Dowland and Ravel. Artists joining us for this special evening include the Navarra Quartet, Guy Johnston (cello), John Mark Ainsley (tenor), William Whitehead (organ), William Vann (piano) and members of the Hertfordshire Chorus directed by David Temple.

The first half of the evening will be presented in the intimacy of the King James Drawing Room, followed by the grandeur of the Long Gallery, before moving back downstairs to the Armoury (where the organ will be heard). The second half will be a complete performance of Ravel String Quartet in F major given by the Navarra String Quartet.

We are hugely grateful to Lord and Lady Salisbury for hosting this exciting event – please join us!

Important Notes
Please note that the nature of the event requires audiences to move around Hatfield House (including to the first floor). Some of the rooms will NOT have seating, so those attending will need to be comfortable standing. The second half of the concert (in the Marble Hall) will have unreserved seating.

If you have any questions access requirements please contact Ruth Cadiot on ruth@hatfieldhousemusicfestival.org.uk or 07779 793253 BEFORE booking your tickets.

Please be advised that capacity is limited for this event.
Tickets £55 (includes glass of wine/soft drink)
