Make it a huge night out in the heart of the city. The Abercrombie & Kent Masters Series is one of our flagships, pairing superstar artists and conductors from around the world with music drawn from across the history of classical music.
During 2020, Conductor Laureate Vladimir Ashkenazy returns to transport us to Sibelius’ Nordic landscapes. Principal Guest Conductor Donald Runnicles, Simone Young and Kirill Karabits each conduct a monumental work by Beethoven to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the composer’s birth.
