Rosalind Ventris is a leading advocate of the viola and performs as a soloist and chamber musician internationally. Her career was launched as a prizewinner of the Tertis Competition aged 17. As a soloist, she has appeared at the Bozar, Royal Festival Hall, Wigmore Hall, Slovak Philharmonic and the Concertgebouw. She regularly performs with the Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective who released their acclaimed debut album on Chandos Records this May. Rosalind is the Director of Musical Performance and Performance Studies at the University of Oxford and is the Artistic Director of the Cowbridge Festival.
Her programme comes from her debut album: a one-of-its-kind recording of outstanding works for solo viola all by women composers. From toe-tapping Grażyna Bacewicz and Imogen Holst to the beautiful ethereal sound of Irish composer Amanda Feery, this is a programme inspired by nature, folk music and dance, showcasing the extraordinary and distinctive characteristics of the viola.
Covid-19 and concerts
In line with the most up-to-date guidance Public Health for Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, we:

- ensure air flow remains good around the building (we have a highly efficient air extraction system in the concert hall)
- advise all ticket holders to take a lateral flow test before coming to an event at the Granary and insist that staff and visitors who are unwell do not attend the venue
Face coverings are currently not compulsory, but if the guidance changes we will communicate this to ticket holders.
