The Salisbury office of accountancy, investment management and tax group, Smith & Williamson, is sponsoring a high profile event taking place at this year’s Salisbury Festival.
Smith & Williamson is helping to support a rare out-of-London appearance by the Chineke! Orchestra with conductor Jonathan Heyward and violinist Tai Murray. The performance is taking place at Salisbury Cathedral on Tuesday, 6 June, as part of the highly acclaimed 16 day festival.
With its debut concert described as 'a significant moment in our cultural life' by The Independent, the Chineke! Orchestra is regarded as the most diverse orchestra working in Europe today.
Susan Roller, a partner in the private client tax team based in Smith & Williamson’s Salisbury office and a trustee of Salisbury Festival, said: “We are extremely pleased to sponsor this performance by the Chineke! Orchestra which celebrates diversity in classical music and helps to champion change. It’s a privilege to be associated with these inspiring and talented musicians and to continue our support of the Salisbury Festival which is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the year.”
Festival director Toby Smith said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Smith & Williamson again this year. The Festival’s classical music reaches thousands of people and the Chineke! Orchestra will be a night to remember in the magnificent setting of the cathedral. We are all so grateful to Smith & Williamson for supporting us to bring the very best arts and culture from around the world to our beautiful city.”
