'Side-by-Side-by-Side-by-Side’
In collaboration with the hugely talented young Somerset composer, J.J. Hathaway, Simon Chalk brings members of Southern Sinfonia to the festival for what promises to be a spectacular melting pot of creativity and inspiration. 
The festival has commissioned J. J. to compose a brand new ‘Concerto Grosso’ incorporating ideas from many of the young musicians who will be involved in the project. 
The performance will be the culmination of a number of weeks of workshops and rehearsals, that enabled the young musicians to work with Simon Chalk and Southern Sinfonia to build skills, confidence and have fun with their music-making.
