On Wednesday Thursday 28 Sept at 7.30pm, the north-east’s premier chamber music ensemble, Royal Northern Sinfonia of Sage Gateshead will be on tour to The Witham, Barnard Castle’s vibrant art centre.
Bringing a wonderful programme of chamber music for strings, the orchestra’s repertoire will include a fantastic feast of Borodin, Shostakovich and Scherzo as well as Mendelssohn Octet in E flat.
Royal Northern Sinfonia has built a world-wide reputation for the quality of its music making and the immediacy of the connections the musicians make with the audiences. Sarah Gent, Marketing and Communications Manager at The Witham says: ‘It’s always a treat to have the orchestra come and perform in Barnard Castle. It really is an opportunity to witness the finest musicianship with such a beautiful set of pieces on offer. It’s true that the orchestra are always so amiable and entertaining- it creates such a personal experience in listening to classical music’.
Another offering of first-class performance is a live broadcast from the Royal Opera House of La Bohème on Tuesday 3rd October at 7.15pm. This will be a unique viewing to see Puccini’s famous opera directed by Richard Jones in a close-up and high-definition experience.
