Today the Norfolk and Norwich Festival announces its programme of events for 2018. For the second year, Britten Sinfonia’s artistic team are pleased to have helped curate the classical music strand of the Festival which sees a host of the finest UK and international artists and ensembles performing in Norwich during May. Britten Sinfonia is also thrilled to be part of the 2018 Festival, performing Beethoven’s Symphonies 4 & 5 conducted by Thomas Adès, and bringing our family concert, Alice through the Looking Glass to Norwich’s Playhouse.

David Butcher, Britten Sinfonia Chief Executive said of this partnership;
“It’s been a great honour and great fun for Britten Sinfonia to help curate the Norfolk and Norwich Festival’s classical music programme for a second year. We’re thrilled to bring world class artists and ensembles to Norwich which include Mark Padmore, Benjamin Grosvenor, Thomas Adès, the LPO and The Sixteen amongst others, performing great music from Purcell to the very best in new music, in some of city’s finest settings. We once again welcome BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists, giving Norwich audiences the chance to hear the stars of the future, with concerts recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3. We are proud to work with this vibrant festival in such a wonderful city where the Britten Sinfonia has developed such as strong residency over the last 20 years.”
Public booking for the Norfolk & Norwich Festival opens on Thursday 8 March.
