Midlands New Music Symposium & New Music Weekend launch!

2020 heralds the inaugural Nottingham New Music Weekend that will see a variety of concerts and events, including a two-day Midlands New Music Symposium at Lakeside Arts Centre as well as various venues across the city. The theme of this year’s New Music Weekend is Deep Sounds, namely works for low pitched instruments.

The programme, developed by the University’s Nottingham Forum for Artistic Research (NottFAR), will showcase new music from the Midlands alongside contemporary repertoire from further afield, performed by pre-eminent performers including trombonist John Kenny, flautist Carla Rees, and clarinettist Sarah Watts. The weekend will also feature electroacoustic works programmed in partnership with the De Montfort University’s Institute of Sonic Creativity.

The New Music Weekend programme will be announced in February.
