ERROLLYN WALLEN IS FRIDAY AFTERNOONS COMPOSER 2018 MIGHTY RIVER I Orchestra X I BBC radio broadcast CONCERTO GROSSO at Teatro Real Madrid with Chineke!
Snape Maltings is delighted to announce that Errollyn Wallen is the composer of 12 new songs for the project in 2018, inspired by her travels around the world.

During her second residency at Snape Maltings in January, the composer worked with young people from the nearby Leiston Primary School, developing her new compositions. On the final day Errollyn and the students visited The Red House, Brittenís home in Aldeburgh, to share snippets of her new works with a small audience.

The new set of songs entitled 'MAP: Songs for Children Everywhere' will be available to download from the Song Bank in April, and will be premiered at the Albermarle Centre, Hull on May 11th. In partnership with Hull Music Hub, the premiere choir will include young people from The City of Hull Junior Choir, Hull Choral Union Junior Chorus and students from Hull Primary and Secondary Schools.
Exploring themes of slavery and freedom, Mighty River combines contemporary classical techniques with spirituals which were introduced to Hull in 1871 by the Fisk Jubilee Singers, an African-American a cappella choir of ex-slaves. The piece, written for orchestra, takes its inspiration from William Wilberforce the English politician, philanthropist and leader of the movement to abolish the slave trade who was, very fittingly, a native of Hull. Part of PRSF New Music Biennal 2017. Listen to the live broadcast from Hull: Errollyn Wallen's brilliant CONCERTO GROSSO (commissioned by Orchestra of the Swan and published by Peters Edition) will be performed by Chineke! at Teatro Real in Madrid on April 14th with Errollyn performing the solo piano part. The work also features Chi-chi Nwanoku on double bass and Tai Murray, violin.

The performance will be part of the World Opera Forum
