'Classically Yours' brings top musicians to Pocklington, Withernsea and Beverley this autumn

Classically Yours – one of the key events in the East Riding’s celebration of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 – continues this autumn with more events across the area.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Orchestras Live have joined forces to bring orchestral music to venues across the East Riding. Thanks to a grant from Arts Council England, and investment from the council – which is a Principal Partner in Hull 2017 - and Orchestras Live, Classically Yours will see some of the UK’s top orchestras, including Manchester Camerata, Sinfonia Viva and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, coming to the area.

Newly added to the Classically Yours programme are:

Councillor Richard Burton, portfolio holder for leisure, tourism and culture, said: “I am delighted that Classically Yours is continuing to provide first class concerts and entertainment throughout this year of Hull 2017, and even more importantly, is bringing classical music to a wide range of venues and locations.

“It is also helping to introduce children and young people to the delights of classical music, and I hope that these autumn concerts – with more still to come – will prove very popular.”

There will be more Classically Yours events later in the autumn, including a candlelit Christmas concert. Details will be published shortly.
