Titre de l'événement: Storytellers- Kensington Sinfonia
Description:

From the quirky phantasmagoria of George Antheil's Serenade for Strings, to the character-piece movements of Telemann's “The Nations” Suite, Kensington Sinfonia presents an evocative program of music surrounding characters and storytelling. We include Purcell's wonderful Chaconne from “King Arthur”, and invite our good friend Jeremy Brown (saxophone) to play “Chase the Money” by CMC Associate Composer John Oliver. We also unveil the winner of our Student Concerto Competition this year, who will join us on stage for the conclusion of our season.

Titre de l'événement: La Bizarre- Kensington Sinfonia
Description:

Kensington Sinfonia's first concert of the 2016-2017 season features Robert Fuchs' glorious Serenade for Strings No. 3, Vivaldi's Sinfonia RV 116, and our own soloist Laura Reid playing CMC Associate Composer Scott Godin's beautiful “Home.” We conclude with “La Bizarre", one of Telemann's masterfully written orchestral suites. Telemann brings marvellous inconsistency and rhythmic and harmonic novelty to these beautiful French Baroque dances.
