Summer 2012


The sun is shining at last! I am in Hereford for the Three Choirs Festival and writing this looking out across fields, beautifully green after all the rain. It is so peaceful here, and most therapeutic after a lot of travelling and many concerts in June. I have had a lovely time though, in Hardelot, Auch, Wigmore Hall, Ludwigsburg, Stuttgart and now Hereford. I am very proud to be taking over from Dame Janet Baker as President of the Three Choirs Festival Society and look forward to having a reason to come back to this beautiful part of the country every summer. This year’s programme is packed with exciting events and everyone works so hard behind the scenes, as I experienced at first hand yesterday- thank you all!
