Late last year, Southbank Sinfonia lost one of its dearest friends Peter Hulsen. A champion of the orchestra since its launch, Peter was a friendly face at so many of our concerts, inspiring us all with his passion for music and everything he did to support young musicians. His grace was especially radiant given his origins: arriving here alone on one of the last Kindertransport trains from occupied Europe, music gave him comfort and hope. We warmly invite you to join us in celebrating the most remarkable gentleman through the music he most loved, performed by former members of Southbank Sinfonia. We are delighted to welcome back past winners of the Peter Hulsen Orchestral Song Award who have consequently proceeded to international careers.

A limited number of seats are available to reserve in advance. To book, contact Ellie Greenhalgh on 020 7921 0370 or
