Roots of the City”

Concert of music created during PRS Foundation’s New Music Biennial Composer Residencies in Hull

PRS Foundation’s New Music Biennial Composer Residencies is a community participation project running in Hull, January 2017 to March 2018.

 Five New Music Biennial Composers, Errollyn Wallen, Eliza Carthy, Sam Lee, Jason Singh, and Brian Irvine have worked with a range of communities to create new music.  Each residency has involved community participants, from across Hull in creating music inspired by the City rooted in the experience of it’s inhabitants.  This concert features extracts from the music created so far, bringing together the composers, community participants and musicians from all five residencies to perform highlights of what they have created.  A massed ‘supergroup’ of performers will fill the stage, and fill the City Hall with the sound of music and voices for Roots of the City

Music from the residencies will also feature in the New Music Biennial festival weekend in Hull – find out more here: www.newmusicbiennial.co.uk
