The Skipton Camerata: Autumn

The empty chairs signal the imminent return of the concert season. Tonight they were filled by the Skipton Camerata, who crossed the Pennines for the first of four concerts taking place over a year. Each includes one of Vivaldi's four seasons; tonight, of course, was Autumn. Other music included Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings.

It is wonderful that the orchestra chose to come to the Cathedral as they seek to establish a following in the North West. Their music is certainly suited to the size and acoustics of the Cathedral.
