Emma Johnson and John Lenehan play at Harrogate International Festival – 15 July 2021

Emma Johnson and John Lenehan will play a Thursday evening Concert at the Old Swan Hotel on 15th July with a socially distanced audience. Their programme includes their joint arrangement of scenes from Bernstein’s West Side Story. ​ Emma Johnson is one of the few clarinettists to have established a busy career as a solo performer which has taken her to major European, American and Asian venues as well as to Africa and Australasia. Emma is one of the UK’s biggest selling classical artists, having sold well over half a million albums. Emma Johnson’s Isolation Lament for solo clarinet was written during the first lockdown in 2020. With more than 70 albums to his credit, reflecting an enormous variety of genres and styles, John Lenehan ranks as one of the most versatile pianists on the classical scene today.
