2012 Celebrations this Summer

With the Olympics coming to London this summer, we’ve lined up some exciting musical celebrations as part of the Summer Festival.

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!
