Britten Sinfonia is delighted to have entered a Principal Sponsorship agreement with Anglia Ruskin University. This is a partnership of ambitious and likeminded organisations committed to delivering excellence to all their students, audiences and other stakeholders.
Britten Sinfonia’s management office is now co-located within one of ARU’s central Cambridge buildings, and through this partnership Britten Sinfonia will support ARU students in a variety of work placements, masterclasses, workshops and research projects. This will give students great workplace and artistic opportunities as part of their courses, as well as enhancing ARU’s cultural offering to students.
Britten Sinfonia will build on their previous partnerships with ARU’s world class Music Therapy and Music Technology projects, such as the “Together in Sound” music therapy project to support people living with dementia in the local community, also delivered in partnership with Saffron Hall. Britten Sinfonia will also benefit from joint research opportunities with leading academics in ARU’s Cambridge Institute of Music Therapy.
“This is a very positive step for Britten Sinfonia”, commented Meurig Bowen, Britten Sinfonia CEO and Artistic Director, “we have had a long and fruitful relationship with ARU, so it is great to build on this partnership. ARU leads the field in several of their music courses and programmes, so we are delighted that we will benefit from this expertise, and likewise we look forward to furthering the support we can offer to ARU students and faculty.”
