Nicola Benedetti and Manchester Camerata in Harrogate

Nicola Benedetti
Violinist Nicola Benedetti will be performing an all Mozart programme with the Manchester Camerata, conducted by Andrea Marcon. at the Royal Hall, Harrogate  on 1 June 2016 as part of the Harrogate International Festivals' 50th anniversary celebrations. The programme includes Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major, and Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major 'Turkish', plus Symphony No. 34 in C major, and Symphony No. 35 in D major 'Haffner'.

As Mental Health Awareness Week has just finished (16-22 May) it is rather appropriate that the pre-concert talk looks at Mozart and his mental health. Nicola Benedetti commented that "Music helps us deal with all the invisible things in life - to communicate with each other, listen to each other, feel each other’s feelings and empathise. Music, if taught well, can help us deal with this complex part of human interaction in a very painless way."
