The Academy of St. Martin in The Field players held an inspiring workshop and Family Cushion Concert

The Family Cushion Concert provided a fantastic new opportunity in Camden, on the 22nd June, enabling families to enjoy and learn from some of our brilliant performers of the Academy. The afternoon included interactive workshops for all ages, where they were given a unique chance to work with members of the orchestra on a piece which they played together in a vibrant performance in the afternoon. The concert included a varied programme, introducing the participants to great orchestral masterpieces, from Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro Overture to a polished performance of a Haydn Trumpet Concerto.

Following last years success, the musicians from the Academy will once again be inspiring young musicians from London in a new, creative project this summer. The ensemble will have the chance to work with players from the Academy over a period of three days, rehearsing, improvising and composing together to create new works and reimagine well-known classical masterpieces. Our Create, Cultivate, Orchestrate! projects are provided free of charge to young musicians aged 9-18 years from London, providing a great opportunity to perform in a concert at Canary Wharf following the full three days of professional workshops!

BRUNDIBÁR Sydney Premiere


in association with SYDNEY JEWISH MUSEUM.

14 August, 6pm & 8pm

The children’s opera Brundibár was a popular cultural activity and a powerful symbol of hope when performed by the Jewish people imprisoned in the Terezín Ghetto in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia.

Seventy years later, the opera will finally have its Sydney premiere production, having been performed hundreds of times around the world since being re-discovered in the 1970s. Performed by a cast of over 30 children aged 8 to 12 years and professional musicians, this will be a beautiful opportunity for parents and grandparents to share their children’s first ever experience of opera.

Brundibár tells the story of a brother and sister who overcome a local town bully in order to help their ill mother. While the context of where Brundibár was first performed is brutal, the actual work is bright, funny, uplifting and full of wonderful music. The orchestration is both delicate and challenging enough to provide entertainment for sophisticated and inexperienced ears alike. As all fables do, it carries meaning and lessons beyond the words and notes for all of us to hear and remember.
