Summer Weekender #2

Published Thursday 12 August 2021

Sinfonia Cymru’s Summer Weekender Festival features 14 new videos plus 4 of our top choices from the existing catalogue. There are three strands to the festival: Players’ Picks, where our wind players have chosen their favourite pieces; Curate, where we give musicians the opportunity to create and develop their own programme around a theme of their choice; and Re-visited, featuring four of our best existing pieces.

Join us on Friday 20 to Sunday 22 August for a feast of music ranging from Hamilton Harty to Joseph Haydn, Clara Schumann to John Stanley, Arvo Pärt to Francis Poulenc, and Rene Griffiths to the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Session 2 – Saturday 21 August, 12pm

In this session, we feature horn player Danae Eggan, flautist Mina Middleton, and oboist Amy Roberts, all accompanied by pianist Hamish Brown. Plus, a chance to look back at our upbeat string ensemble version of the traditional Welsh song, Sosban Fach led by Simmy and Rakhi Singh.
