A celebration of making music.

Led by Sofi Jeannin, the CBSO, CBSO choruses and Dame Sarah Connolly perform a superb programme of music - that’s all about the people who make it. Weir’s Music, Untangled draws on Scottish folk-song, while Muhly’s Friday Afternoons, following Britten’s example, is inventively written for children. Britten’s famous Young Person’s Guide tours the orchestra; while Elgar quotes his famous ‘Nimrod’ in Music Makers.
