Southbank Sinfonia at Rush Hour

Southbank Sinfonia
The Southbank Sinfonia's series of Rush Hour concerts continues this week, with Charles Hazlewood conducting the ensemble on Thursday 20 March 2014 at 6pm in St John's Church, Waterloo. Hazlewood will be including lighting, projections and movement to create a more immersive performance of music by James MacMillan, Charles Ives and Mendelssohn. Then next week, on 27 March, sees a continuation of the Southbank Sinfonia's baroque project and the players will be working with early music specialists, using gut strings and period bows in CPE Bach, Leclair, Telemann and Locatelli. On April 3 they are conducted by Ben Gernon, a young conductor currently working with Gustavo Dudamel, in a programme of Peter Maxwell Davies and Mozart.

The Southbank Sinfonia is an orchestra of 32 young graduates who gain experience and come together to explore repertoire and work alongside major conductors, and give us some very vital performances. Their Rush Hour concerts are free and last from 6pm to 7.15pm, an ideal way to end the working day and start the evening. Further information from the Southbank Sinfonia website.
