The contemporary classical festival Nordic Music Days will take place at Southbank Centre for the first time between 28 September and 1 October as part of Nordic Matters, the Centre’s year-long exploration of arts and culture from across the Nordic regions.
James Fountain, the principal trumpet of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, will perform the Hummel Trumpet Concerto with the Arch Sinfonia in June 2017.
Arch Sinfonia are off to Yorkshire in May, to perform at the Swaledale Festival.
Arch Sinfonia are back online with a new website by our friends at Vital Creative.
The Arch Sinfonia popped up on a sunny day in London and invited members of the public to take to the podium and conduct music by Vivaldi and Mozart.
Sir Simon Rattle, who is to make his much-anticipated return to London this year as the LSO’s music director, will take the lead in the “Half Six Fix” series, aimed at commuters who want to get home in good time and older people who do not like to stay out too late. It will also target new audiences, with organisers hoping a one-hour-long informal session will be less daunting than a full-length concert.
