Thank you to Dame Felicity Lott who sang so beautifully last night, with festival director Joseph Middleton at the piano, for our London launch of the 2017 Leeds Lieder Festival. Thank you also to the Vernon Ellis Foundation for hosting the occasion and all who joined us for a special evening.

Dame Felicity Lott will be the Festival Guest of Honour in April next year. Details of festival events are up on the website, and general booking opens from 12 December. Hope to see you there!
