RETROSPECT: November in Pictures

Posted on: November 30, 2012 in: Month in Pictures

Remember, remember CLS in November. As we get closer to ‘the most wonderful time of year’, we felt it high time we had a photographic reflection on what City of London Sinfonia has been up to this past month. Highlights this November included a trip up North for a performance at Hull City Hall, returned to St John’s Smith Square for a performance featuring John Adams The Wound Dresser and Mozart’s Requiem and made our debut at London Jazz Festival with the brilliant Gwilym Simcock! As usual, the City of London Sinfonia team have been taking snaps throughout the month; here’s a selection of the best…
