Members of Britten Sinfonia

Our ensemble of talented young musicians perform works by Philip Glass and Beethoven, alongside a new composition by Kenneth Hesketh inspired by original Handel manuscripts unearthed from the Founders Bequest to the Fitzwilliam Museum.

Britten Sinfonia Academy, now celebrating its fifth year, is formed from young talented musicians from across the east of England, and focuses on the aspects that make Britten Sinfonia unique: performing without a conductor, working in small ensembles and exploring new music.
