30.5.-10.6. Bath International Music Festival, UK

  30.5.-10.6.  Bath International Music Festival, UK The Festival takes place annually over 12 days in late May to early June, and showcases a rich range of high quality events featuring orchestral and classical virtuosos, jazz giants, folk, roots and world musicians, innovative collaborations and unique commissions. The Bath International Music Festival stands out nationally for the strong identity that Joanna MacGregor, the Festival\'s Artistic Director, has created for it, in the diversity of the programming, the thoughtfulness with which collaborations are created, and the intelligent exploration of contemporary social issues though music. Appointment of New Artistic Director from 2013 The 2012 Music Festival will be Joanna MacGregor’s seventh and final festival in Bath.   Joanna has created an extraordinary series of festivals, and her immense contribution, innovation, and incredible versatility will be hugely missed.    A worthy successor has been appointed however, in the composer Alasdair Nicolson, whose work has been presented and broadcast internationally, with commissions and premieres in recent years with the London Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Nash Ensemble and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.  He is also the director of the St Magnus Festival in Orkney, and will continue to work on this alongside his role in Bath.    For the 2012 events programme see here: http://www.bathmusicfest.org.uk/events.aspx
