The Chipping Campden Festival Academy Orchestra is widely acknowledged as the UK’s foremost side-by- side orchestral training scheme.
First formed in 2008 the CCFAO is formed anew each year and performs 3 concerts at the Chipping Campden International Music Festival.
22 “Academy” members, selected by audition, are paired with experienced professional players hand picked from the UK’s leading orchestras.
Each concert features international soloists including the likes of Paul Lewis, Imogen Cooper, Ronan O’Hora, Nicola Benedetti, Anthony Marwood, Jack Liebeck, Alison Balsom, Lawrence Power, Steven Isserlis, Julian Lloyd Webber, Adrian Brendel, Michael Collins, Emily Beynon, Kate Royal, Elizabeth Watts, Mark Padmore, Roderick Williams, and Allan Clayton.
Pianists Steven Osborne and Eric Lu (winner of 2018 Leeds International Piano Competition) and Dame Sarah Connolly join us next May when we will also premiere David Matthew’s “Concerto for Orchestra”.
