St John Passion 26 April 2015 - 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 24 May, when the orchestra will be conducted by Roger Williams, and the programme will include music by Brahms and Liszt, as well as Mozart's Piano Concerto K491 with Joseph Long as soloist.
