Enter a captivating musical universe where the familiar merges with the unknown. Alongside traditional acoustic instruments, you will discover the sounds of electronic instruments such as the LinnStrument, Seaboard Rise and Clarion, which can be played with any movement of the body.

In addition to performing their own set, NOYO and BSO Resound will come together to present an original version of Alexander Campkin’s What Fear We Then?, a joint commission re-arranged for the occasion. This celebratory set will also feature new arrangements of Spring by Vivaldi and Time by Hans Zimmer and a performance of the recently composed Emanation by Shirley J. Thompson.

This afternoon’s programme will showcase how diversity can push the boundaries of classical and contemporary music in exciting new directions.
