Enjoy an uplifting tribute to the late Walter Hawkins, pioneer of contemporary 20th Century gospel style. The composer was pivotal in creating a new reverent, jazzy, authentic gospel sound. Renowned UK Gospel Choir Director, Audrey Lawrence-Mattis, returns to her 'alma mater' as producer and musical director with mass choir and band, taking you through a thrilling evening of spiritual music.

THU 19 NOV ORCHESTRAS, ENSEMBLES AND CHAMBER MUSIC

COMPOSERS’ ORCHESTRA 6pm Adrian Boult Hall £6.50 (£4) Tickets available on the door

Elgar Introduction and Allegro Op.47 Mozart Eine kleine Nachtmusik K. 525 Tippett Concerto for Double String Orchestra This programme explores three of the most enduring pieces for String Orchestra in the repertoire. Both the Elgar and Tippett find distinctive and innovative ways of revisiting a baroque style Concerto-Grosso and pay homage to Handel in particular. However, characteristically Elgar finds ample opportunity to weave sumptuous English folk-like melodies throughout his work and Tippett even manages a nod to Beethoven within his intricate and well-knit textures. The Mozart, of course, needs little introduction and metaphorically greets us here as a familiar, welcome and jocular old friend.

New works by students of the Composition Department

Join us as we eavesdrop on the first performances of a selection of new orchestral works and experience the excitement of this unique creative environment.
