Concert for the climate



Activism in classical music is alive and kicking. Video of the band that is doing so much right, the Britten Sinfonia, playing at the Greenpeace Climate Rescue Station in Plac Wolnosci in Poznan, Poland on December 9 during the UN meeting on climate change. How green was your concert?

Before anyone asks the obvious question ...

The Britten Sinfonia did not make the 1500 mile round trip to Poland and back by plane. They took the Eurostar train from London to Brussels, and then went by coach for the rest of the journey.
