Bangor University Symphony Orchestra

Chris Collins and Graeme Cotterill (conductors)
Grace Williams: Ballads
Sibelius: Symphony No. 6

The University Symphony Orchestra presents a concert of atmospheric music, including two rarely-heard masterpieces. Welsh composer Grace Williams described her orchestral suite Ballads as a 'synthesis of medieval Welsh laments, proclamations, feasts and combat’. Sibelius’s Sixth Symphony evokes a similar timeless past, its soundscapes reminiscent of the stark beauty of Finland and the rippling colours of the Northern Lights. The concert also includes a concerto performance by the winner of the School of Music’s annual soloist competition.
