CONCERT BY BBC SINGERS
FRIDAY 6 OCTOBER 2017 6:00pm
PACE
Once again, the BBC Singers are delighted to perform as the guests of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors (BASCA) in a concert celebrating the work of black and minority ethnic composers.

The concert follows BASCA’s Europe-wide call for scores from their members and is a fantastic opportunity to hear new and challenging choral music, conducted by James Morgan, in the beauty of St Gabriel’s Church, Pimlico.

Admission to this recording is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.

FRIDAY 10 FEBRUARY 2017 7:00pm
Greenwich Variations
Downes examines America in these turbulent times through the lens of her own mixed African American and Eastern European background, using a breadth of American music across multiple genres and styles. She calls this music a tribute to the generations of Americans-black and white, men and women, immigrants and pioneers - who have dreamed the impossible, telling the stories of their journeys, loves and longings, hardships and hopes.

Post-concert spotlight performance
We were all very sorry that Royal Northern Sinfonia Music Director Lars Vogt was taken ill back in November, and unable to be at Sage Gateshead to perform Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Concerto. The phrase ‘the show must go on’ certainly rang true that evening, however, and we were extremely grateful to Peter Donohoe who travelled up from Oxford at very short notice to perform the concerto to a packed out Sage One with no rehearsal.

Lars was extremely sad about not being able to perform after so much preparation and so we are delighted to inform you that as a special treat he will be performing the ‘Emperor’ Concerto as a post-concert performance at New Year, New Artists on Friday 27 January.

Hemingway Between the Wars — featuring NEW WORK
TUESDAY 8 DECEMBER 2015
A December 2015 concert collaboration between The Morgan Library & Museum and Cygnus Ensemble, Hemingway Between Two Wars will feature five contemporary composers in fresh dialogue with a brief-but-vibrant epoch in 20th-century literature and the arts. Specially commissioned works from American composers Laura Kaminsky, Damon Ferrante, Jessie Montgomery, William Anderson, and British composer Errollyn Wallen will zoom in on the cultural milieu within which Ernest Hemingway found himself during his Parisian sojourn of the 1920s. The program will not only engage with this towering American literary figure, but also those cultural luminaries in his orbit, mostly fellow expats. All five works will be scored for Cygnus Ensemble’s exotic fusion of winds, strings, and two guitars, in addition to guest vocalists for the pieces by Wallen and Anderson, and the Sheer Pluck guitar orchestra for the piece by Anderson.

Vanishing Point
TUESDAY 21 JANUARY 2014 7:30pm
Are You Worried About the Rising Cost of Funerals?
In Geometry textbooks we're told that parallel lines never meet but, from our visual perspective, they do meet at the horizon or the vanishing point as it's called.

Similarly in music it seems that singer/songwriters and composers have very little in common. But, as in geometry the truth depends on our perception. Vanishing Point will reveal the fascinating intersection of pop music and contemporary classical that is a emerging as a major trend.


Program
Are You Worried About the Rising Cost of Funerals? by Errollyn Wallen
Errollyn Wallen is an accomplished composer and singer/songwriter and the perfect person to open up the evening. This piece for soprano and string quartet is strictly notated like a good classical piece should be, but has the light feel and catchy tunes of the pop world.

Four Songs by Beck
Beck annoyed radio stations but delighted composers by releasing his new album Song Reader only in the form of sheet music. Four of our composer members will arrange the songs for soprano and the Palomar ensemble. The composers are Brian Baxter, Andy Costello, Michael Miller, and Greg Steinke.

Conceive a Man by William Jason Raynovich
The founder and Artistic Director of the MAVerick Ensemble, composer William Jason Raynovich's Conceive a Man for soprano and cello will here be reimagined by jazz vocalist Christy Bennett

Three Songs by Jennifer Hall
A favorite singer/songwriter of Palomar ensemble violinist Jeff Yang, Hall's haunting voice and insightful lyrics have made her a trusted Chicago favorite. Instead of a band, she'll front the Palomar ensemble in three arrangements of her original tunes.

Kong Must Dead
Composer Ben Hjertman is a difficult guy to pin down. He's equally comfortable writing for orchestra and other classical ensembles as he is with a rock band. His high octane band Kong Must Dead will play a set of his music to close out the night.

These celebrated musicians share histories that can see them fit as comfortably into a wide spectrum of celebrated western musical genres, while simultaneously embracing the myriad of complex audio soundscapes at the heart of the rich musical tapestry of styles synonymous with the African classical music Diaspora.
Their use of improvisational languages and spontaneous explorations are also fused with traditional European notions of harmonic and melodic inventions.

A ResCen Symposium
TUESDAY 27 NOVEMBER 2012 6:00pm
A ResCen Symposium: ‘Composing and Performing in the Age of Globalisation: Errollyn Wallen at the London Paralympics 2012’



The symposium explores the creative conditions of writing and performing music for a global event in reference to the range of themes in the opening ceremony of the Paralympic games, such as enlightenment, human rights and the homecoming of athletes. The themes were approached by musical composition, communal participation, emotional reach and through scopes of architecture, audiences and worldwide media. Video examples of the world premieres of Errollyn Wallen’s Principia and Spirit in Motion will be viewed and reflected on by the artist herself and then in a question-and-answer session.
The evening will be introduced by Dr. Ola Johansson, discussing the challenges of artistic performances in the age of globalization. Errollyn Wallen will develop and explore this by examining her own experiences and insight into the ideas of Composing and Performing in the Age of Globalization including her personal perspective on her work for the London Paralympics 2012. The evening will conclude with a generously assigned question-and-answer session open to the public.

The event will be chaired by Dr. Ola Johansson, Reader in Contemporary Performance Practice at the Centre for Research into Creation in the Performing Arts.

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 touring in October and November in the UK. The performers are Chineke! featuring Chi-chi Nwanoku on double bass, Tai Murry, violin and Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano. Conductor is Shaun Matthew.
