Britten Sinfonia is one of the world's most celebrated and pioneering ensembles. The orchestra is an Associate Ensemble at the Barbican, has residencies in Norwich, Cambridge and Brighton, and a chamber series at Wigmore Hall. Britten Sinfonia enjoys a growing international profile, and is frequently heard on disc, BBC Radio 3 and commercial radio.
'But as always with this orchestra there was more to savour than just stellar performance. The programme was ingeniously shaped' (Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph)
'The playing was marked by the kind of luminous and infectious beauty that only comes from a true marriage of mastery and love' (The Times0
'The UK's most consistently dynamic chamber ensemble' (The New Statesman).
Britten Sinfonia tour dates
Since forming in the 15th century the choir of King's College, Cambridge have established themselves as the pre-eminent representative of the British church music tradition. Initially established by King Henry VI in 1441, the choir was formed to provide daily singing in his chapel, a role which the choir still fulfills today.
The choir derives much of its reputation from its annual performance of 'Nine Lessons and Carols' which is broadcast worldwide to millions of people on Christmas Eve each year. Over the years the choir have been invited to perform concerts in countries across the world.
