A note from the Artistic Director

This summer, we are be doing what we always do: bringing great live music to beautiful Ryedale places. But we are sharing it in a different way. 

Our new online platform RyeStream has been created to keep the spirit of the festival alive until we can welcome audiences back to our venues in person. And between 19th and 26th July we used it to live stream a special Online Festival to our followers throughout the world.

Our Online Festival consisted of eight concerts, broadcast daily over the course of one week from three beautiful Ryedale venues. These concerts are now available to view until Sunday 16th August. 

It’s a different festival for a different time.

You can browse the online programme here. To view the concerts, please visit the RyeStream page and click on the events. Content is free-to-view, but please make a donation to support our digital programme if you can.

Our Online Festival is there to throw open the doors of the Ryedale Festival this summer. It’s there to share the joy of classical music with more people than could ever fit into one venue. And it’s there to support performers at a time when they have never needed it more. 

Whether you are longstanding supporter or a new follower, I hope you enjoy our online concerts, and thank you for being part of the Ryedale Festival family.
