A view from a steward

As our 20th Birthday season approaches we've been asking various people their thoughts on Britten Sinfonia and what event has been a highlight for them. Beth Morgan,  a regular steward in Cambridge picked out one of her highlights;

It has been a great delight and privilege to steward for the Britten Sinfonia for the last 5 years. The wide-ranging programmes, the new music, the relationships that the orchestra develops with guest performers and composers, all add up to series after series of special concerts.

One lunchtime concert earlier this year was devoted to a cycle where Luke Bedford took Franck’s Piano Quintet in F minor and interspersed its 3 movements with 3 of his own. The result was wonderfully stimulating and the audience left the auditorium on a high. I lost count of the number of people who wanted to share their excitement with the stewards. I think we all went home very happy that day.
