Exploring Emotions: Joy

Our season-long look at the contrasting facets of human nature ends with an exploration of joy.

Poulenc’s uplifting Sinfonietta, written shortly after the end of the Second World War, overflows with catchy tunes and dance rhythms, and Argentinian Astor Piazzolla’s famous Libertango – a reinterpretation of his country’s quintessential dance – is a celebration of freedom of expression.

Rounding off our season at Cadogan Hall, the youthful energy and enthusiasm of our Music Junction performers will be given full rein in a new commission by award-winning composer and instrumentalist Ollie Howell, mentee of the legendary Quincy Jones.

Tickets £10-40 available here
