A close encounter you won’t forget!

Join Southbank Sinfonia at St John's Smith Square to celebrate the exciting retrospective of composer Stephen Montague - an American original who has made London his home. In this captivating programme you’ll hear echoes of his musical heroes such as Charles Ives, John Cage and Steve Reich expressed through Montague’s highly original 21st century voice. His music delivers an edgy punch and an unforgettable experience. Expect quirky, expect monumental, expect high energy, expect reflection – most of all, expect to be spellbound and to dive deep into the theatrical and expressive trans-Atlantic sound world of Stephen Montague.

Southbank Sinfonia is joined by students from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, participants from Contemporary Music for All (CoMA), Lambeth Music Service, and Kentish Town Cantores.
