New Music Focus | DURHAM

Tuesday 26th October to Sunday 27th October 2019

The Ives Ensemble will be celebrating MUSICON's fiftieth anniversary with a series of concerts that express their affinity with and deep commitment to music in and from Durham. As many know, our city has a strong and rich musical history, spanning throughout the ages. In the recent past, Durham has also become a centre for contemporary music – more composers in this versatile and pioneering field are based here than anywhere else in the North-East. Over three concerts this internationally renowned and distinguished group will perform works by no less than six composers who form part of the recent musical fabric of Durham.

A pre-festival talk with composers and performers will take place in the venue before the second concert, at 6.45pm on Saturday 26th October.

Festival pass: £16, Students £6
(gives access to all three concerts)
