Performers

The London Sylvan Ensemble is a vibrant and dynamic group that started when founder member, Jay Bevan was at Trinity college of Music. Over the last 11 years the group has increased in number and now performs a wide variety of chamber music from quintets to larger scale works.

Under the baton of conductor Tom Higgins, who took over the musical reins in 2015, the ensemble has gone from strength to strength.

The London Sylvan Ensemble regularly commissions new works. For this concert we are pleased to have two new works on the programme. One is from the acclaimed American composer Lawrence Axelrod; the other is from the home-grown talent of Robert Mathew Walker.

We are delighted to welcome guest artist Sarah Markham, who will be performing the stunning Ibert piece, Concertino da Camera on alto saxophone.
