Founded in 2010 by conductor, cellist and London City Island resident Jonathan Cohen, Arcangelo Orchestra has won praise and awards from critics and audiences around the world, with recent highlights including a 2018 Classical Grammy Award, and a sell-out appearance at the 2018 BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall.
In April, the group met at Trinity Gallery on London City Island to rehearse for its next London performance at Wigmore Hall. London City Island residents, locals and curious passers-by were all warmly invited to come and watch a special public open rehearsal from 2pm-5pm on Thursday 4 April. The group was rehearsing brilliant Baroque music by Antonio Vivaldi, written in the style of his famous ‘Four Seasons’. As well as the orchestra, the audience was able to watch and listen to star international vocal soloists Emőke Barath, Anna Reinhold and Callum Thorpe. This was a unique opportunity to see top international musicians working to create a performance.
