The current crop of LL Young Artists will take the stage for a celebratory performance of the Serenade to Music.

6:45pm – Pre–Concert Talk with David Hoult and Kathleen Evans
Our past and current Chairs of the Leeds Lieder Festival have contributed much to the success of the charity. Join David Hoult and Kathleen Evans in conversation as they discuss the history of the organisation, from early events and recitals given by illustrious names such as Dames Janet Baker and Margaret Price, and Florian Boesch to recent BBC recordings and our gala at Wigmore Hall with Sir Thomas Allen.
