Date Published: 5th July 2022 (2 Min Read)

GBIM was delighted to be sponsoring Sean Shibe (guitar) with Quatuor Van Kuijk (string quartet) at the Northern Aldborough Festival.

Sean is one of the most talked-about artists performing today and combined his guitar with the French Quatuor Van Kuijk string quartet in a collaboration of quintets by Boccherini, Steven Mackey and Castelnuovo-Tedesco. Sean was the first guitarist ever to be selected for BBC Radio 3’s New Generation Artists scheme, to be awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship and in 2018 to receive the Royal Philharmonic Society Award for Young Artists. The string quartet are celebrating their ten year anniversary with a number of special programmes, including the complete cycle of Mendelssohn Quartets, a new commission by French composer Benjamin Attahir, and a programme of French melodies “Parisiennes” specially arranged for string quartet.

It was a great day where clients and intermediaries enjoyed bubbly in the sunshine followed by the concert. We continue to support the much-loved Festival, and contribute to the cultural landscape of the region.
