For the sixth consecutive year, Canford is delighted to welcome members of the Britten Sinfonia to the school for a two day residency on 11th and 12th February.
Britten Sinfonia is one of the world’s most celebrated and pioneering ensembles. The orchestra is acclaimed for its virtuoso musicianship, an inspired approach to concert programming which makes bold, intelligent connections across 400 years of repertoire, and a versatility that is second to none.
As part of the residency, musicians from the Britten Sinfonia will hold a series of workshops and masterclasses for Canford pupils, including opportunities for both performers and composers. On Wednesday evening the Britten Sinfonia and Canford musicians will hold a concert of chamber music to which all are very welcome. A programme of chamber works will include Elgar’s Piano Quintet and movements from works by Telemann, Beethoven, Mozart, Vaughan Williams and Mendelssohn.
Tickets are free and available from email@example.com or by phone on 01202 847486.
