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

City of London Sinfonia Minis showcases our 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.

Our two performances at the Albany feature members of the City of London Sinfonia 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.

Mindfulness plays an integral role in our evening concert: City of London Sinfonia violinist Ann Morfee leads a mindful meditation as part of the performance, using mindfulness techniques for the body and mind to help relieve stress and enhance the audience’s experience of the music. This one-hour concert is ideal for people who need to relax after a long, hard day at work and for people who want to experience something different.
