A note from the Artistic Director

This summer, we’ve been doing what we always do: bringing great live music to beautiful Ryedale places. But we’re 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 beautiful Ryedale venues. The full concerts are no longer available to view, but short clips of each performance are available for all to enjoy on RyeStream and YouTube. Content is free-to-view but please make a donation to support our digital programme if you can.

Our Online platform is there to throw open the doors of the Ryedale Festival and to share 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. We’re now working hard on some exciting plans for next season and more details will be available here soon.

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