Tom Service presenter

Aurora is delighted to return to this year’s Bury St Edmunds Festival for what is thought to be the first-ever memorised performances of Beethoven’s iconic Symphony No. 5.  This very special concert also features BBC Radio 3’s Tom Service, who sets the scene by discussing the musical content of one of the greatest symphonies ever penned, and talks to Principal Conductor Nicholas Collon and the Aurora players about the extraordinary journey of preparing a performance without printed scores.
