Top-notch Classical Music at The Witham this March

On Wednesday 29 March 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.

Brining a wonderful programme of chamber music for strings, the orchestra’s repertoire will include Mozart’s Duo for Violin and Viola, Schubert’s String Quartet No.12, Kodaly’s Serenade for Strings and Brahms’s String Quartet No.2.

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. Maddy Sutton, Audience Development Officer 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 Covent Garden by The Royal Opera House of Madama Butterfly on Thursday 30 March at 7.15pm.  This will be a unique viewing to see Puccini’s famous opera conducted by Antonion Pappano in a close-up and high-definition experience.

To book tickets and find out more information, visit The Witham between 10am and 4pm, Tuesday to Saturday, book online: www.thewitham.org.uk or call 01833 631107.
