Concert by La Serenissima

Following a sell-out concert at Cartmel Priory in 2015 as part of the Magna Carta Festival, La Serenissima is back by popular demand to perform at Cartmel Priory this September.

Directed by violinist Adrian Chandler, La Serenissima is recognised as the UK’s leading baroque performance ensemble and recently won a prestigious Gramophone Award . Currently in residency at St. John’s Smith Square, London, this is a rare opportunity to hear a renowned baroque ensemble in the stunning surroundings of the 800-year-old Cartmel Priory. A truly unmissable event.
