We are actively planning a season commencing October 2021.
Read about our collaboration with Lake District Summer Music Festival below.
Concerts from October 2021?
The Trustees met in early June and there has been a lot of progress on planning for concerts later this year and into 2022. We are determined to restart our concert series as soon as possible. There are, of course, a lot of unknowns about social distancing, and we want to ensure that not only the orchestras, but also our audiences feel safe.
We have a plan. It’s a bit rough and ready, but it’s definitely a plan. Under normal circumstances, we would have planned each season at least one year before it began. So, we’re a bit behind the pace for a first concert in October 2021, but we’re catching up quickly and orchestras are also keen to have dates in their diaries.
Coming soon …….
The proposed season will include our own much-loved Lakeland Sinfonia, old friends Royal Northern Sinfonia, and (hopefully) some big national and international names. We should be able to publicise the dates for your diaries within the next few weeks with details of programmes, soloists, conductors and works following later in the summer. Arrangements for ticketing, Track-and-Trace and the Members and Friends Schemes will also be confirmed in the coming weeks, as we learn more about the Government’s ongoing advice and constraints.
We hope that Members, Friends and concert-goers will be as excited as all of us about these developments and we will send you further information as soon as we can.
Donation to Lake District Summer Music Festival
The classical music groups around the region are collaborating to bring live performances back as soon as possible. As part of this collaboration, the Trustees have decided to make a significant financial donation to the Lake District Summer Music Festival, to help underpin their plans for July/August. We celebrate their ‘can do’ attitude in the face of so many uncertainties, and encourage all our members to enjoy and support their events this summer.
We are grateful for the financial support of the Arts Council England and South Lakeland District Council.
Lakeland Sinfonia Concert Society is UK registered charity 505373.
We bring high quality live classical orchestral music to South Lakeland and North Lancashire.
