What's On

2013 marks the centenary of the birth of Benjamin Britten, probably the finest of all Britain's modern composers.  

Music by Britten and Vaughan Williams.

We will mark this year with a performance of his early work The Company of Heaven, for speaker and choir with orchestra. The concert will also feature Vaughan Williams' The Lark Ascending, a top favourite always on the classical music charts, and his exquisite work An Oxford Elegy, also for speaker with choir and orchestra. An atmospheric and uplifting concert for a summer evening.
