Howdenshire Music’s first lunchtime concert of 2024! Featuring the exciting young Bridge Ensemble, supported by Music in the Round.
Introducing the Bridge Ensemble to East Yorkshire, a wind quintet who champion music by marginalised composers from backgrounds under-represented in chamber music. Opening with Valerie Coleman’s joyous Kwanza dance Umoja and concluding with a brand new Afrobeat-inspired work by the group’s clarinettist Ọlá Akindipe, this concert is an inviting tour through too often overlooked works which also features the beguiling and bluesy Summer Music by Samuel Barber, best known for his Adagio for Strings.
