City of London Sinfonia presents Brass in Brixton, part of its CLS Minis series: a spring series of miniature lunchtime and evening concerts, curated and performed by CLS musicians.
CLS Minis showcases our outstanding professional musicians in chamber music composed for strings, brass and wind instruments. Each concert allows you to experience live music closer than you can in a traditional classical concert, and our musicians bring their own insights and introductions.
Our lunchtime performance in Brixton – outside in Windrush Square, and in association with Brixton BID – features members of our brass section in chamber music written especially for brass. The programme, curated by Principal Trombone Dan Jenkins and Principal Trumpet Nick Betts, includes Canzonas and Sonatas by Gabrieli, Summertime by Gershwin, and Freeway written by our very own Principal Trombone, Dan Jenkins.
This 45-minute event is outdoors in a public space; it is not ticketed and is open to everyone. It’s perfect for people who benefit from being able to move around, and who may need to take a few minutes’ break in a dedicated quiet space.
CLS Minis is generously supported by John Singer.
