Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival: A Family Affair

The annual Hatfield House Chamber Music Festival invites internationally renowned musicians to perform in the historic setting of Hatfield House each year under the expert artistic direction of cellist, Guy Johnston. The 2023 theme A Family Affair explores repertoire which highlights the importance of relations between composers as well as celebrating family connections between artists, in the magnificent surroundings of Hatfield House. Community has always been at the heart of this musical gathering, but never more so than this year.

Ensembles made up of great friends, a married couple, siblings and family connections will appear throughout the weekend including Orsino Winds, Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective, Julian Bliss Jazz Quintet, Johnston Brothers, Bevan Family, Ruby Hughes, Huw Watkins, Ben Goldscheider, vocal consort Ensemble Pro Victoria, and Orion Orchestra.
