Southbank Sinfonia launches into a packed 2013 season in the coming weeks – here are some key dates to pop in the diary.

January

We delve into 2013 with composer and kindred spirit, Felix Mendelssohn. The first Rush Hour concert of the year on Thursday 24 January sees our new players take on music from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, plus Academy of St Martin in the Fields impresario, Harvey de Souza, joins us for the much-loved violin concerto.

We return to the beautiful modern riverside Rose Theatre Kingston, for an all-star performance on Saturday 26 January. Orchestra patron and internationally renowned actress Patricia Hodge provides theatrical interludes alongside excerpts from Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, plus Classic FM’s John Suchet discusses his lifelong love of Beethoven by means of introduction to the Eroica Symphony.

A first for the orchestra, we will be exploring Tchaikovsky’s great Symphony No.5 in the round on Thursday 31 January. This is a great opportunity to get inside the music, as Simon Over leads an open workshop and performance on the work.

February

Time for some family fun – and this time we’re doing a touch of musical mechanics on Saturday 16 February. Presenter and pianist Dominic Harlan explores the cogs and gears whirring within a range of exciting music as part of our Saturday Spectacular Family Concert series.

We are excited to welcome two performers who have made an indelible impression on the classical music industry. At our Rush Hour on Thursday 21 February, Charles Hazlewood leads an exciting programme leaping from Haydn to Prokofiev, whilst the following week we are joined by pianist and composer Ryan Wigglesworth.



March


As part of an ongoing association with the Conservatoire de Paris, we will be performing on both sides of the channel as we share the stage with talented young musicians from the Conservatoire. The festivities begin with a Rush Hour concert on Thursday 14 March in London, before we cross over for two concerts in the French capital on Friday 15 and Sunday 17 March.


April

A staple in the Southbank Sinfonia calendar is our annual appearance at the London Handel Festival at the historically preserved building of St George’s Hanover Square. On Friday 12 April, our young players take on baroque music, joined by Adrian Butterfield as well as Vox Musica.

May

We’re very excited to be performing as part of Southbank Centre’s landmark festival The Rest is Noise, charting the impact of 20th century events on music. On Saturday 11 May, our players will present the remarkable music composed by Jewish prisoners in the concentration camp at Terezin.

Internationally renowned conductor and orchestra patron Vladimir Ashkenazy returns in 2013 to conduct the orchestra in Bristol on Wednesday 29 May and in an exclusive supporters concert on Thursday 30 April.


July

Join us in the beautiful Tuscan hill-town of Anghiari from Saturday 20 to Sunday 28 July for our annual festival. We present a rich programme of orchestral, chamber and choral concerts.
