String quartets thrive in London parkmain
The clarinetist Anthony Friend is putting on a chamber music festival in Battersea Park bandstand on four early evenings between 1-15 September.
Taking part, weather permitting, are the Doric, Maggini, Solem and Hill Quartets.
That’s real class, and Wandsworth Council are paying for it.
Councillor Steffi Sutters, council member for Community Services and Open Spaces says: ‘Over the past few years, the council has invested thousands of pounds in our parks. Now, more than ever, we want to encourage our residents to get out and enjoy the fabulous green spaces, right on their doorstep. We’re delighted that the organisers were able to secure such high calibre quartets in a matter of weeks.’
