Our Festival Welcome concert features all of our 2022 guest artists. New to the festival and debuting in 2022, we welcome UK violin soloist, Emma McGrath to perform Sarasate’s fiery Caprice Basque and Australian piano virtuoso Simon Tedeschi, in their first performances at the festival. US Baritone Alexander York also debuts in 2022 with songs by Poulenc and stunning vocal duets with soprano superstar, Alexandra Flood and Simon Tedeschi. The

concert concludes with the Bangalow Music Festival’s Quartet in Residence, The Orava Quartet, performing Borodin’s most sublime work: his String Quartet No.2 which was a sumptuous love letter to his wife.
