FSO Quartet plays for Wind Tunnel Project Launch

FSO Quartet plays for Wind Tunnel Project Launch

09 June 2014

Last Saturday, the FSO String Quartet played for the Launch Dinner of the Wind Tunnel Project.

The dinner itself was in the return duct but, because of the unique acoustics, the sound of the quartet playing in front of the fan could be heard clearly. Earlier in the day Principal Cello, Robin Chave, had taken part in various live performances to showcase the acoustic qualities of the historic wind tunnels. On 12th July the strings of the FSO will be returning to perform a concert in the same iconic venue. Tickets are available from Concerts.
