Just over 25 years ago, Britten Sinfonia was established as a bold re-imagining of the conventional image of a chamber orchestra.
A flexible ensemble of some of the UK’s leading soloists and chamber musicians came together with a unique vision: to collapse the boundaries between old and new music, to collaborate with composers, performers and guest artists across artforms and genres; and to create involving, intelligent music events that both audiences and performers experience with an unusual intensity.
All of Britten Sinfonia’s performances in Norwich can be booked via the Theatre Royal box office, in person or via 01603 6300000 or online athttp://www.brittensinfonia.com
