Summary

This evening’s concert is part of Music on your Doorstep, a day of live music, exploration and activities for adults and children of all ages. Relax with an hour of music from all around the world, performed by a group of musicians who have performed all around the world. Britten Sinfonia’s string players can’t wait to share their favourite music from their travels including a Mendelssohn Octet, Grieg’s Holberg Suite and a new piece of music by award-winning young composer Dani Howard, which was specially written for this event.

Tickets: £10/£12/£15*, to include a free drink (glass of wine, beer or soft drink).

Music On Your Doorstep also includes:
Pushchair Playlist
After-School Music & Craft Drop-in

*We love sharing the magic of live music and we want everyone in the community to feel able to join in if they want to. For some, money can be tight (especially in January/February), or they are used to paying concession prices for things. Others might be in a position to pay a little more to help support the musicians and their local venue. So… we’ve got different ticket prices depending on everyone’s situation: it’s a bit like an honesty box. We won’t ask any questions or ask for any proof – just choose the price that suits you best.
