    TICKETS AVAILABLE (click to book)

    The spiritual heart of the Minster is its Quire; at the heart of the Festival Sinfonia is a string section of sumptuous quality. The glowing acoustic of the former is the perfect setting for performances by the latter. Tchaikovsky’s Mozart-inspired Serenade is one of the greatest works of the string chamber orchestra repertoire – elegant, passionate and full of memorable tunes. In this performance the movements will be interspersed with short works by composers including Rameau, Shostakovich and the African-American George Walker.
