End of term concerts

This week sees the last concerts in the Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall before the Easter break, and there is a feast of music on offer from today until Friday.

The programme this week is one of contrasts:

Wednesday 30 March, 6pm - Student Showcase

Another opportunity to hear performances by students from the School of Music. The piano features strongly in a programme including Bach's second Partita, music from Prokoviev's Romeo and Juliet suite, and settings of Ondine by Ravel and Debussy.

Thursday 31 March, 6pm - Afro-Colombian Ensemble

Hear music with its roots in West Africa blended with Spanish and Criollo song and poetry from Colombia's Caribbean coast. The ensemble play hand-made Colombian instruments and is led by Ian Middleton.

Friday 1 April, 1.05pm - Music for Two Pianos III

Ian Buckle and Richard Casey perform a lively programme including Gershwin's An American in Paris, Piers Hellawell's Victory Boogie-Woogie, and John Adams' Hallelujah Junction.

All the concerts are free.
