In part of its 75th season, Edinburg International Festival will offer free digital programming.

The “At Home” series running August 5 -28 will feature five commissioned short films, two full-length concerts, a series of exclusive music sessions, and behind-the-scenes interviews with leading artists.

The vocal selections include selections performed by Ukrainian soprano Liudmyla Monastyrska and Elgar’s “Dream of Gerontius” with Sir Andrew Davis conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Edinburgh Festival Chorus, and the National Youth Choir of Scotland.

Early music specialists Jordi Savall and the Hespèrion XXI ensemble will participate in the music sessions, as will the Gaelic Vocal Trio.

The Edinburgh International Festival began in 1947 to restore arts and culture after WWII. Every August the festival shares various types of music, dance, and theatre performances. This is the second year of offering the “At Home” series.

All digital content will be available until November 2022.
