    Strings at the Albany: Relaxed Performance

    A Relaxed, lunchtime performance from City of London Sinfonia's string section

    Strings at the Albany is the first instalment of CLS Minis: a spring series of miniature lunchtime and evening concerts, curated and performed by City of London Sinfonia musicians.


    The lunchtime concert is a relaxed performance. It lasts 45 minutes and is 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 showcases 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.


    The performance features members of the CLS string section in chamber music written especially for strings, including Company by Philip Glass and Serenade by Josef Suk. Principal Viola Fiona Bonds and Sub-principal Viola Ruth Gibson also perform George Benjamin’s viola duet, Viola, Viola.


    CLS Minis is generously supported by John Singer.
