In Memoriam Benjamin Britten 28 April 2013 - Aberdeen Sinfonietta

Aberdeen Sinfonietta was formed originally as a small ensemble which played regularly in Aberdeen and also toured throughout Scotland. Since then it has substantially increased its membership in order to extend its musical repertoire and to give many of the area’s professional and outstanding amateur musicians the opportunity to perform in its concerts. Aberdeen Sinfonietta now has its own annual series of three concerts in Aberdeen’s Music Hall, and has established itself as one of the foremost contributors to music-making in this part of Scotland.

The last of this season’s Music Hall concerts will take place on Sunday 26 May 2013, when the orchestra, conducted by David Jones, and with Julian Bliss as clarinet soloist, will perform music by Mozart, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Bizet and Debussy.
