Our 2017-18 season came to an end with the final performance of our Kleptomania series at St John’s Smith Square, London. It’s been a fantastic season for Septura, full of firsts – our first US and Germany tours, first visits to lots of fantastic UK venues and festivals, and of course, our first concert series, performed in London and Cambridge.
Kleptomania has been an important artistic step for the group – a chance to gain performance experience of lots of our existing repertoire, as well as to play several brand new large-scale arrangements. We’re delighted that the final concert, Song Swag, received a 4* review on Bachtrack, which called it “ensemble playing of the highest quality”, and noted that “if you thought an ensemble of trumpets and trombones would be limited in tonal colour, you could not be more wrong”. You can read the full review here.
We’re looking forward to an even more exciting season in 2018-19. Details will be published towards the end of the summer, so watch this space!
