We’re pleased to be hosting performances of two new works from the PRS for Music Foundation’s New Music 20×12 commissioning scheme, which will open and close the Festival.
Ringing from the tower of Christ Church Spitalfields on Friday 8 June (and again on Saturday 23 June) will be Howard Skempton‘s Five Rings Triples, a new work for church bells celebrating public gathering. The work was premiered at the very start of the year in Kingston-upon-Thames and you can hear a short clip from the piece on the BBC website here.
Our second New Music 20×12 work comes from David Bruce and is called Fire. We’ll be posting more details soon about this new piece and how you can get involved in the performance!
