Sat 20 April


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