Last fall, Daniel Hope was named the Featured Artist at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, the largest classical music festival in Germany. In celebration of the violinist’s 50th birthday year, 50 concerts are being programmed, and for the first time in its history the residency is taking place not only during the festival period in July and August but for the entire 2023 calendar year, from January to December. 

Marking the largest retrospective of Hope’s collaborative work to date, the concerts include a new commission, music and spoken word, chamber music and youth workshops. He performs at the festival this summer with New Century, NDR Radiophilharmonie, Schleswig-Holstein Festival Orchestra led by Christoph Eschenbach, SIGNUM Saxophone Quartet, amarcord vocal ensemble, Irish folk group Lúnasa and many more, with performances of his own programs including “AIR – A Baroque Journey,” “East meets West,” “IRISH ROOTS” and “America.”
