  • Enescu Octet for Strings
  • Mendelssohn Octet in E flat major

Join Royal Birmingham Conservatoire Musicians at CBSO Centre for an afternoon of chamber music - Mendelssohn's perennial youthful Octets paired with an exotic and rarely heard work of epic proportions: a string Octet by Enescu. Light refreshments will be provided during the interval. 

All proceeds from the event will go towards the ARCO Project, an innovative alliance, established in 2015 between Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and Morris Isaacson Centre for Music, an inspiring institution in Soweto, Johannesburg.
