The magic of the British Isles seduces not only its native artists, but all who find the elegance of the cities, the romance of the literature, and misty magic of the moors irresistible.

Felix Mendelssohn made ten visits to London, and began his famous three-year Grand Tour with a walking trip through the Scottish Highlands. Join us for music by composers for whom the British Isles were a supreme source of inspiration.
