'The Richmondshire Concerts take place in a light, airy ex-cinema, now called the Influence Church, in Victoria Road, Richmond. It's the best classical music venue in the district. It's warm, and has comfortable, raked seating, clear sight-lines and an excellent acoustic. Seats are un-numbered. The venue is about 20 minutes by car from Leyburn or Darlington, 30 from Northallerton, Bedale or Barnard Castle, 40 from Thirsk, Ripon, Stockton or Durham ...'

Forthcoming Concerts and Recitals

‘Concert series in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Bringing world class performances in a year round concert cycle.’ Typically half a dozen or so recitals per annum at venues in and around Aysgarth.

 

* Wensleydale Concert Series
Forthcoming Concerts and Recitals

‘We hope the classes offered in this syllabus will appeal to people of all abilities. The Wensleydale Tournament offers the opportunity for sympathetic assessment and encouragement from experienced adjudicators. If you have any reservations about entering, do be assured that you will be given a warm reception by a Wensleydale audience, which is well known for its friendliness. Adjudicators have commented on the uniqueness of this Festival of Speech & Music because of the quality of local interest and delight in amateur dedication and effort.’ Held Early April.

 

* Wensleydale Tournament of Music and Speech

Founded 2010: ‘We are a welcoming women's choir for military Wives, Affiliates, Girlfriends and Servicewomen based in and around the Catterick Garrison area ... The Choir’s ethos has always been to provide support, friendship and fun through singing and this has never been more evident than when the ladies are dealing with lengthy periods of separation from their loved ones. For many, the support from the Choir is what keeps them going, when their wider families live many miles away ...’

'This community orchestra seeks to perform to a high standard, and gives three concerts a year ... Entry is open to all string players, but places for wind and brass players depend on the balance of forces available.'

 

+ Richmondshire Orchestra
Forthcoming Concerts and Recitals

'Founded in 1989. From small beginnings we have grown to be an established choir of some 40 members, primarily from Swaledale and Wensleydale ... We sing an eclectic mix of musical styles, including major choral works, light opera choruses and folk songs, by such as Mozart, Sullivan and Rutter. Concerts in local churches, including in recent years at the Swaledale Festival, are given around three times a year, often to support a charity.'

‘We are three Community Choirs ... Platform 1, Platform 2, The Branch Line ...  Anyone who wants or likes to sing is welcome to join us and there is no audition to go through. The choirs are friendly and welcoming with the emphasis on enjoying our singing. We have two terms during the year, autumn and spring, and each term ends in a performance of the best songs learned that term. The choirs perform separately and together to produce an evening to remember. We are also strong supporters of local charities and we have raised £1000s on their behalf ... The Station Charity (RPBT) kindly helped to underwrite the cost of launching The Station Singers in September 2011. Due to our great success, from August 2013, we now are self-financing, and operate as an independent community group.‘
