A gala concert celebrating five years of New Music in the South West. Featuring specially arranged repertoire classics and the most popular NMSW commissions, including highlights from the delightful A Modern Menagerie (a contemporary response to Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals).

The programme also provides a glimpse into the future of music with new work by composers from the St George’s Bristol/NMSW Young Composers Academy and shortlisted pieces from the Sound World Young Composers’ Prize – Sound World’s annual search for the region’s brightest young composing talents.

This represents a unique opportunity for young composers at this early stage in their development, and public support is very much encouraged!

Presented by the new music and education charity Sound World
