Musicon Concert Series 2017/18
(5 February 2018)
Musicon would like to invite you to four concerts of enthralling music from the last four decades of the 20th century. There will be performances from the Ives Ensemble from Amsterdam and mezzo-soprano Lore Lixenberg. Composer Trevor Wishart will also be present at the mixing-desk to allow people the rare opportunity to be guided through his piece Red Bird by his own hand. All concerts will take place in the Concert Room at the Music Department on Palace Green. Further information and full concert programme details can be found on the Musicon website.
