Britten 100 Festival

Edward Benjamin Britten, Baron Britten, (22 November 1913 – 4 December 1976) was an English composer, conductor, and pianist. He was a central figure of 20th-century British classical music, and wrote music in many genres, from film scores to opera. His best known works include Peter Grimes and The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra.

The University of Otago Music Department is celebrating 100 years since the birth of Britten with a festival - the southern-most Festival celebrating the centenary of Benjamin Britten in 2013, running April 12th - 24th.
