Canzona String Quartet at Christ the Consoler

Church of Christ the Consoler, Skelton-on-Ure, North Yorkshire
20th July 2024

An evening of music in beautiful surroundings presented by the Friends of Christ the Consoler.

Canzona String Quartet

Nicholas Ward and Paula Smart violins

Catherine Yates viola and Damion Browne cello


The Canzona String Quartet is led by Nicholas Ward with colleagues from NCO soloists, the chamber ensemble of the Northern Chamber Orchestra which he directed for over 30 years.

In March 2023 Nicholas was in Ripon Cathedral, leading the Orchestra D’Amici in a marvellous performance of Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius. This promises to be an exquisite evening of classical music in the unrivalled setting of this beautiful 19th Century Church in the parkland of the Newby Estate.

The Church is managed by the Churches Conservation Trust. All net proceeds from this concert will be used in the Conservation Heating Project to protect the stained glass.
