THE RENOWNED Albion Quartet returns to North Yorkshire this month for a midsummer concert as part of the North York Moors Chamber Music Festival fringe series.

The string quartet, comprising Tamsin Waley-Cohen, Emma Parker, Ann Beilby and Nathaniel Boyd, will perform works by Mozart, Schubert and Schumann from 7pm on Saturday, June 22 in St Michael’s Church,Coxwold.

North York Moors Chamber Music Festival director Jamie Walton, himself an internationally-known cellist, said: “The increasing popularity of the festival and its local, loyal audiences is creating further opportunities to stage concerts throughout the year, serving as a kind of crescendo to the main event.

"We’re keen to reach out to uncharted areas of the National Park, and St Michael’s Church, is a new venue which we’re including for the first time on this midsummer weekend.

“As with all of our events, the concert will have a friendly and relaxed atmosphere – and with anyone under 30 entitled to a free ticket, we hope that young people will take this opportunity to hear some wonderful classical music in a truly glorious venue.”

The concert is a fringe event of the North York Moors Chamber Music Festival which this year will see performances in nine churches between August 11 and 24.
