Benjamin Britten’s Friday Afternoons

Jerwood Hall
United Kingdom

Join some of LSO Discovery’s younger participants as they explore Benjamin Britten’s Friday Afternoons, a set of twelve songs written for school children. Part of a national initiative by Aldeburgh Music to encourage as many young people as possible to sing the songs on what would have been Britten’s 100th birthday.

The short and witty songs were written for the composer’s schoolmaster brother and the boys of Clive House preparatory school, Prestatyn – a school in which choir practice and singing lessons regularly took place on a Friday afternoon.
