  Academy of St. Martin in the Fields Chamber Ensemble  
(Arts)

The Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, one of the finest chamber orchestras in the world, is renowned for its polished and refined sound, rooted in outstanding musicianship. Formed in 1958 from a group of leading London musicians and working without a conductor, the academy gave its first performance in its namesake church in 1959. Today, the academy performs some 100 concerts around the world each year, with as many as 15 tours each season. In 1993, the academy became the first and only orchestra to be awarded the Queen's Award for Export. The eight musician chamber ensemble will perform Brahms' Sextet in G-Major, Op 36; Shostakovich's Prelude and Scherzo for String Octet, Op. 11; and Mendelssohn's Octet for strings in Eb-Major, Op. 20.

This program is co-presented by the Center for the Arts, Department of Music, and School of Performing Arts and Cinema.
