2020 heralds the inaugural Nottingham New Music Weekend that will see a variety of concerts and events, including a two-day symposium at Lakeside Arts 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.
