Symphonia Academica  

Peter Bussereau’s Bedfordshire-based orchestra return with another inventive programme of music for chamber ensemble. The concert will be shaped around a tribute to composer, pianist, musicologist and broadcaster Antony Hopkins who, until his death in May 2014, had been our President since 1959.  It will be presented by his widow, Beatrix.

‘I shall always remember (Antony Hopkins’) generosity of spirit and desire to spread the word about the joy and magic of classical music.’

Roger Wright
